Eamon Fox who was shot dead by the UVF alongside Gary Convie in 1994 in Belfast.

A man identified by a new witness as being the alleged gunman in the double murder of two Catholic workmen has still not been questioned by detectives, the High Court has heard.

A judge was also told how a former police ombudsman found evidence of RUC collusion in the loyalist assassination of Gary Convie and Eamon Fox in north Belfast 20 years ago.

Mr Justice Horner granted bail to a man now accused over the shootings.

Mark Campbell, 42, of Canning Place in the city, was arrested and charged with the murders earlier this month. All of the alleged offences are denied.

It has been alleged that Campbell was in the getaway vehicle used to drive the gunman from the murder scene.

Campbell was ordered to live at an address in Carrickfergus. He will also be curfewed, electronically tagged and must report to police daily.
