Struggle: Willie Frazer

A man arrested after an alleged assault on victims' campaigner Willie Frazer has been released pending further investigation.

The 60-year-old man was arrested in Dungannon after Mr Frazer claimed to have been attacked at his Co Armagh home on Sunday. Mr Frazer (54) said he was attacked on his own doorstep shortly before 7pm as he was preparing to attend a church service.

He said the caller had given him a sympathy card and told him he was "a dead man walking".

Mr Frazer feared his ribs had been broken after he struggled with the man on the ground. CCTV footage, which can be seen on the Belfast Telegraph website, shows Mr Frazer wrestling with an unknown man who called to his door.
