Mid Ulster MP Francie Molloy has condemned last night's attack fire service personnel in Coalisland.

The incidents happened while officers were dealing with Halloween call-outs. No one was injured.

The Sinn Féin representative has said a small number of youths threw fireworks and missiles.

"I condemn outright the attacks that took place in Coalisland,” he said, describing it as regrettable.

Mr Molloy said they had a very successful fireworks display with about 2,000 families and young people attending.

“So it’s regrettable a small number of youths were firing fireworks and missiles at the fire service who are there to protect and look after local people," he stressed.
