The family of a prominent loyalist who was murdered three years ago has offered a £10,000 (€10,850) reward for information.

John Boreland was shot dead in the Sunningdale Gardens area of north Belfast on 7 August 2016.

Three men have been jailed for perverting the course of justice in relation to the incident, but no one has been convicted of murder.

On the third anniversary of Boreland's killing, his family has offered a reward for information to secure a murder conviction.

His father Billy and mother Winnie described their son as a loving father to his three children.

In a statement they said their "broken lives will never be healed".

"On 7 August 2016, our son John got out of his car at his flat when he was shot multiple times and left to die.

"John was a loving dad to three children and he never got to live to see his grandsons. He was also a much loved brother and uncle," Mr and Mrs Boreland said.
