Northern Ireland parties complain about posters theft

A number of Northern Ireland's political parties have complained about the theft of posters for the upcoming European and local council elections.

The two elections are taking place on 22 May.

The DUP's Lord Morrow said a number of Diane Dodds' election posters were removed in Dungannon and Donaghmore on Wednesday evening.

Alliance has said a significant number of its posters have been stolen in the Belfast, Lisburn and Strangford areas.

Sinn Féin's Máirtín Ó Muilleoir and Deidre Hargey used Twitter to report the theft of their party's posters in Castlereagh, South Belfast and South Down.

SDLP councillor Justin Cartwright also tweeted about the removal of his party's posters in the Finaghy area of South Belfast, while NI21 used social media to highlight its posters being removed.
