Convicted murderer Samuel McKinley, 53, remains on the run from Maghaberry prison – more than a week after he was due to return from a pre-release work scheme.

McKinley’s sons – Jonathan and Samuel – were jailed in England on December 19 for the murder of a newsagent in Hampshire.

Hampshire Constabulary have said they do not believe the recent conviction of his sons is related to McKinley’s going missing.
