It has been confirmed that North Antrim Sinn Fein MLA Daithi McKay has received a bomb threat.
The Assemblyman said he will not be deflected from his duties.
The Sinn Féin MLA commented: “I have been made aware of a warning put through my constituency office that stated that there is a bomb planted outside of my home. The cowards behind the threat and their accompanying actions are beyond contempt.
“Whilst I’m conscious of the despicable threat directed towards me and my family, I want to make it clear that I, along with my Sinn Féin colleagues for that matter, will not be deflected from our duties.
“As an elected representative I will continue to work in our pursuit for equality and the building of peace and reconciliation in my constituency and beyond.”
