North Antrim Sinn Fein MLA Daithi McKay has described last night’s murder in Ballymoney as “a terrible blow to the victim’s family”.

A man in his 40s was shot dead in Riverview Park in the town around 10.30pm on Monday evening (January 5th).

The MLA said: “Those behind this murder need to be taken off the streets and anyone with any information on this attack should bring it immediately to the PSNI.”
