Have your say

Tuesday night’s thunderstorm has resulted in business at Magherafelt Courthouse being transferred this morning to Antrim.

It is understood the torrential rain brought down a ceiling and allowed flood water into the 240-year-old building at Hospital Road.

The Courthouse, a Listed Building, had been due to close this year but this was recently delayed until late 2015.
