A man was arrested yesterday on suspicion of murdering a pensioner in Northern Ireland more than a decade ago.

Norman Moffatt, 73, was stabbed as he walked home after buying his morning newspaper in Coleraine, Co Londonderry, in 2001. He died two months later.

Police arrested the 41-year-old suspect yesterday in Stockport, Greater Manchester. He was expected to be taken to Northern Ireland for questioning.
