Up to 200 relatives of those killed by Loyalist paramilitaries have called for the investigation into allegations of police collusion in murders to be published.

They have been discussing the report of the Stevens Inquiry, which is due to be given to the North's policing board in the coming weeks, at the Europa Hotel in Belfast.

The group claims that revelations regarding covert actions by MI5 and the Force Research Unit in two BBC Panorama programmes represent the tip of the iceberg.

The Northern Secretary, John Reid, will respond later today.
