Howard Primary School: Decision to drop NI polling station upheld

Northern Ireland's chief electoral officer has upheld his decision to stop using a school as a polling station following a loyalist protest.

It followed loyalist intimidation of Sinn Féin workers at Howard Primary School in Moygashel, County Tyrone, during last May's EU and council elections.

After a row over how the public were consulted, Graham Shields reviewed his decision to no longer use the school.
