Lee Clegg, the paratrooper who was released after serving four years for the murder of Belfast teenager Karen Reilly, was the victim of a serious assault by two other soldiers.

Lance Corporal Clegg, who was convicted in 1993 of murdering the 18-year- old joyrider, suffered facial injuries and had a tooth knocked out in the attack at Catterick, North Yorkshire. His solicitor, Simon McKay, said: "He was the victim of a serious assault and has suffered facial injuries which required stitches. The incident, which happened as he was returning to his billet on Saturday night, is being investigated by military police."
