A former NI21 local council candidate who lost her father in an IRA bomb blast has joined the Alliance Party.

Jayne Olorunda, 34, was only two when her Nigerian-born father, Max Olorunda, was killed by an incendiary device on board a train from Ballymena to Belfast in 1980.

Her announcement comes as Irish publishers Maverick release her book Legacy. The book tells the story of her family’s decision to remain in Northern Ireland after the devastating incident.
