PPS will not oppose Martin McCauley's weapons appeal

The Public Prosecution Service has said it will not oppose an appeal by one of the so-called Colombia Three against a weapons conviction.

Martin McCauley was seriously wounded and a teenager killed when police opened fire on a hayshed in County Armagh in 1982.
