Martin McGuinness will not attend Tuesday`s funeral for murdered prison officer David Black after his family declined the senior republican`s offer to go.

Cookstown will come to a standstill tomorrow as hundreds of former colleagues, friends and neighbours pay their respects to the 52-year-old married father-of-two.

Mr Black was gunned down by suspected dissident republicans at high speed on a motorway as he drove to work at the high-security Maghaberry prison on Thursday.
