Appeal to PSNI on border incident

Gardai have asked the PSNI to investigate an incident in which a Northern Ireland-registered vehicle rammed a garda patrol car during an incident near the border yesterday.

The garda car was damaged in the incident near Castleblaney.

The pursued vehicle later succeeded in making its escape over the Monaghan-Armagh border into Co Armagh.

Gardai declined to say if the incident was linked to the recent robbery of a Co Cavan hotel.
