A convicted murderer has told jurors that he was a close associate of the alleged gang boss James “Whitey” Bulger. He said he joined him in a double murder in which Mr Bulger wore a wig and false moustache and escaped in a car capable of sending out a smokescreen or oil slick to deter pursuers.

Kevin Weeks, 57, became the second high-ranking member of Boston’s Winter Hill crime gang to testify against Mr Bulger, who is accused of 19 murders in the 1970s and 1980s. Mr Bulger, 83, who spent 16 years on the run, denies the charges.
