UVF move in to take on racist members

(The People)

UVF terror lords have 'arrested' four of their own race-hate monsters behind a string of sickening attacks, The People can reveal. And they discovered the UVF members had formed links with a British racist group and had been spreading their hate message among kids as young as eight.

Two of the four UVF members were still being 'questioned' by their leaders last night (Saturday) amid claims from one source that they could be forced to leave Northern Ireland.

Furious PUP MLA David Ervine had earlier called for the attacks to stop after a Chinese family was targeted in the run up to Christmas.

The boss of the UVF in The Village ordered a crackdown on Friday night on gangs attacking families who had moved into the Donegall Road district of south Belfast. Last night a senior UVF source said: "We have identified four people we believe are behind this campaign.

"Two are still being questioned. We discovered they have had links with the British National Party."

The source said he believed the matter would be left in the hands of the PSNI though he added: "Some of them may find themselves being exiled."

Meanwhile, there was fury in The Village last night over a report in The Guardian yesterday that said: "The Village in south Belfast is a run-down network of loyalist terraces where unemployment is high, union flags sag from lampposts and almost every family has a link to loyalist paramilitaries."

Several people rang The People to complain. One mum-of-three fumed: "Most people hate the paramilitaries and the racists. This article branded us all terrorists."
