The Belfast Telegraph reveals that, following the Martin Ingram spy and human bomb claims, Secretary of State Peter Hain ordered all agencies to provide a full account of the allegations. All intelligence agencies have rejected both claims. Martin Ingram had also claimed that the DUP had more documents proving the allegations. Media rumours then began that Peter Robinson had received the documents from a Special Branch officer. DUP Deputy Leader Peter Robinson has categorically denied this. (Hat tip to Joe Canuck).
