Subject: James Molyneaux former UUP leader dies

Written By: Philip Eno on 03/09/15 at 11:40 am

Former Ulster Unionist Party leader James Molyneaux has died aged 94.

His political career spanned more than three decades.

He joined the party in 1946 and went on to become one of its longest-serving leaders from 1979 to 1995.

At the end of World War Two, he was among the first British troops to enter the newly liberated Belsen concentration camp in Germany.

He was knighted in 1996 and was granted a life peerage in the 1997 Birthday Honours list, becoming Lord Molyneaux of Killead.
