Tributes for 'truth' judge

Tributes were today paid to a former judge who was remembered for trying to seek the truth for victims of the Troubles.

Mr Justice Henry Barron (left) was critical of the British and Irish Governments and security forces in several reports he wrote on atrocities during the 70s.

The 81-year-old passed away after a short illness at St Vincent's University Hospital in Dublin yesterday evening.

Margaret Urwin, of campaign group Justice For The Forgotten, said Judge Barron made a difference to people's lives.
