Sinn Fein said it is undeterred by a death threat issued against one of its MPs.

The party said at the weekend that Mid Ulster MP Francie Molloy had been given notice by the police of “an imminent threat to his life from unionist paramilitaries”.

Fellow MP Mickey Brady said: “This is the latest in a line of recent threats towards our representatives and members, and while Sinn Fein and Francie Molloy are taking these threats seriously, it will not deter us from carrying out our work for all of the people in our constituencies.

“I appeal to anyone who has any information to bring it forward to the PSNI so those who are intent in taking us backward are brought to justice.”

The PSNI would not comment on the matter.
