Police investigating the murder of prison officer David Black have made another arrest.
The married father of two was gunned down in a high-speed motorway ambush last Thursday as he drove to work at Maghaberry prison in Co Antrim.

A Police Service of Northern Ireland spokesman said: "Detectives investigating the murder of David Black on the M1 motorway on Thursday November 1 have arrested a 46-year-old man in the Lurgan area."
He has been taken to Antrim police station for questioning.
