'The bullet was lodged close to my brain'

A man who was severely injured in the Troubles 40 years ago has been threatened with legal action over a care bill.

Kevin Rafferty was shot and paralysed in a sectarian gun attack in June 1978.

He has received a £30,000 bill from the Belfast Health Trust for arrears over the cost of his care in a Dunmurry nursing home.
