There has been condemnation after a memorial to the victims of an IRA bomb in Co Tyrone was vandalised.

Paint was thrown over the Teebane Memorial in the early hours of the morning.

Two different colours of paint were thrown over the front of the monument.

This latest attack follows damage to the floral tributes left at the site by family members only a few weeks ago.

Eight men were killed in the bombing on January 17th, 1992.

DUP Assembly candidate, Ian McCrea, has hit out at those responsible, saying it "beggars belief that there are those who will stoop so low".

"I want to appeal to anyone travelling along the Cookstown to Omagh Road in the vicinity of the memorial who may have witnessed any activity please contact the police as soon as possible", he added.
