A DUP councillor has apologised for comments she made about a planned republican parade in County Tyrone.

Ruth Patterson said she was guilty of "a lapse of judgement".

In a conversation on Facebook, she had responded to someone else's post about an imaginary attack on the parade in Castlederg in which several people including Sinn Féin figures are killed.

Gareth Gordon reports.
