UDA leader, Johnny Adair, freed from jail this morning, has been welcomed back in the Shankhill heartland.
The British government could not keep him in jail any longer after his 16-year sentence for directing terrorism expired at midnight.
Arriving in the Lower Shankhill, known as Little Beirut, he was greeted by hordes of supporters.
Wine had been relabelled as 'C Company champagne', and Adair made a speech in which he denied that that the UDA were nothing more than "drug dealers and glue sniffers".
Meanwhile an LVF spokesperson has also said that it had reorganised and warned if Adair was killed then it would kill six in return.
