A farmer from the Sperrin mountains has daubed some of his animals with a pro-EU message.

Colin Gibson, 54, sprayed the word ‘IN’ on two creatures on his land near Dungiven.

The unusual PR effort comes amid fevered efforts of both pro-and-anti EU campaigners to win over hearts and minds ahead of the upcoming referendum.

One noticable recent anti-EU effort was when a gable wall in loyalist Tiger’s Bay in north Belfast was daubed with an anti-EU slogan invoking the Book of Revelation.
