Londonderry councillor Gary Donnelly receives six-month prison sentence

A Derry councillor and leading dissident republican has been given a six-month prison sentence for causing criminal damage to the city's historic walls.

Gary Donnelly, 43, from Iniscairn Road in the Creggan area, was charged with painting political slogans on the city's walls in February.

An appeal hearing against the sentences is expected to take place in January 2015. Donnelly and the other two defendants have been released on bail.
