Police find gun used in Lyra McKee murder


Police in Derry have confirmed the handgun found in a dissident Republican weapons cache last weekend was used to murder Lyra McKee.
The freelance journalist was shot dead while reporting on a riot in the Creggan area of the city in April last year.

The 22-calibre pistol was found during a two-day search in the Ballymagroarty area.
