Irish police are investigating an incident of criminal damage at the Quinn Packaging plant in Ballyconnell, County Cavan.

A Garda spokesman said a vehicle parked near the plant had been damaged between 21:00 and 22:00 GMT on Monday.

The incident is the latest in a series involving the company's property since new management took over last year.

Fermanagh businessman Sean Quinn lost control of the company after being bankrupted earlier this year.

A fire damaged the group's headquarters in County Fermanagh in January.

In December, a lorry was driven into the complex, leaving a gaping hole in a building.

Sean Quinn was once believed to be the richest person in Ireland.

He was bankrupted in January over a debt owed to the former Anglo Irish Bank, now the Irish Bank Resolution Corporation (IBRC).
