Mayor angry at PSNI family search


The Sinn Fein mayor of Newry and Mourne has said he intends to make a complaint to the Police Ombudsman after his family were stopped and searched.

Pat McGinn claimed his family were detained for a "considerable time" near their Bessbrook home on Saturday night and accused the PSNI of harassment.

It is understood that they were stopped at a routine vehicle checkpoint.

The police said that any concerns should be raised with ombudsman Nuala O'Loan's office.
