A disgraced ex-DUP mayor faces being stripped of his MBE award after he was convicted of trying to get a boy aged under 16 to engage in sexual activity.

Former Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough councillor Thomas Hogg denied the offence but was found guilty following a contest hearing at Belfast Magistrates Court last week.

The case followed the 32-year-old's arrest at the dance music festival V36 in Newtownabbey.
