Controversy: Hercules Mulligan

Councillors could be asked to overturn a decision to honour a Coleraine-born "unsung hero" of the American Revolution.

Objections have been lodged against moves to celebrate Hercules Mulligan in the Causeway Coast and Glens area.

It comes after records showed he owned a slave after helping to set up an anti-slavery society.
