Notorious loyalist Johnny 'Mad Dog' Adair today made a surprise appearance in his former Shankill stronghold in Belfast.

The convicted terrorist posed for photographs for the Sunday Life newspaper during a lightning visit to the province from his Bolton home.

It is understood that after visiting the Shankill Adair then travelled to Portadown, but was expected to return to England tonight.

Adair was released in January from Maghaberry prison, where he served a sentence for directing terrorism, and was immediately flown by Army helicopter to Manchester in order to protect his safety and preserve public order.

However, speculation has continued that he might make a return to Northern Ireland.
