Kingsmills inquest: Emotional reunion of sole survivor and man who helped him

The only survivor of the 1976 Kingsmills murders has been reunited - for the first time in 40 years - with the man who found him, lying in a ditch, badly injured after the IRA gun attack.

Retired teacher Gerry McKeown said a prayer for Alan Black and held him until medical help arrived, after IRA gunmen shot dead 10 of Mr Black's colleagues.

On Thursday, the pair met during an emotional day at the new inquest into the murders.

Gordon Adair reports.
