Former Mount Vernon UVF leader Mark Haddock sentenced to 12 years today

ONCE they were the best of but the most unlikely of friends.

Mark Haddock was the Mount Vernon UVF boss and Catholic-born Terry Fairfield was his ‘quarter master.’, the man he trusted to keep safe guns and explosives.

Today, Haddock was jailed for 12 years at Woolwich Crown Court for a brutal stabbing on Terry Fairfield.

Haddock, 47, was told he will have to serve a minimum of eight years behind bars for the attack on Fairfield – codenamed ‘Mechanic’ by his police handlers – outside a pub he runs in Milton Keynes last January.

The court heard Haddock lured Fairfield outside and into the pub car park where he stabbed his one-time friend in the neck.

Haddock – codenamed ‘Agent Roxy’ by his RUC Special Branch handlers -has a lengthy criminal record and was described in a probation report to the court as someone who posed a “significant danger to the public”.

His record includes a ten-year sentence for a vicious attack on army boxing champion and pub bouncer Trevor Gowdy in 2002.

He has also convictions for arson and also for a UVF-mob attack on the Golden Hind pub in 1997.

The former terror boss is also linked to a string of murders currently being investigated by the PSNI’s Operation Ballast team probing UVF activities in north Belfast.
