Ulster Unionist MLA Rosemary Barton has called on the wider community to help stop criminal attacks on the Brantry Parish Church Hall in South Tyrone.

It is the second time it has been targeted in recent weeks.

Mrs Barton said: "To have this rural church hall damaged last week was disgraceful but to have it again targeted just two days after the first attack with more windows broken and more damage caused is shocking and outrageous.

"While there is an onus on the police to provide a service for everyone, including the parishioners of Brantry Parish, there is also a responsibility on everyone, including the residents of this rural area to do whatever they can to help stop these attacks and assist with catching the culprits.

"I call on all of those in the local area to Brantry to help put an end to this criminal activity."
