PSNI Chief Constable has met Kevin Lunney and the QIH directors in Fermanagh

Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) chief constable Simon Byrne has met Kevin Lunney and the Quinn Industrial Holdings directors in Fermanagh.

Mr Lunney, was snatched near his Co Fermanagh home and brutally assaulted in September.

The 50 year old suffered life-changing injuries after he was abducted and tortured two months ago.

Mr Byrne described the crime as "truly horrific."

He has also reassured the directors of Quinn Industrial Holdings that he is working closely with the Garda in a bid to bring those responsible to justice and appealed for anyone with information to come forward.

He said, "The vicious people who carried out the attack on Kevin Lunney have no place in our society."

The father-of-six spoke out about the attack in a BBC Spotlight interview, describing how he had been slashed with a knife, doused with bleach and branded by his captors before being dumped on a remote road in Co Cavan.

A cross-border police investigation is under way.
