POLITICIANS have united in condemnation after a loyalist splinter group apparently sent a bullet in the post to newly elected Sinn Finn Assemblyman and Coast Road councillor Oliver McMullan this week.

On Tuesday morning, staff in the Sinn Fein constituency office in Dunloy opened a package addressed to Mr Mullan and discovered a bullet and a card on which was written “Loyalist Action Force”.

The politician, who said he handed over the items to PSNI detectives for forensic examination, declared that he would not be intimidated and challenged those who sent the bullet to him to a public debate.
