AN Ulster Unionist councillor has suggested Sinn Féin pay for repairs of Garvagh War Memorial's from their party funds.

The call came after a member asked for a closer examination of a £114,000 maintenance bill.

A structural survey has identified “significant issues” with the unusual crenelated memorial in the town's main street.

And the lowest price submitted under a council tender process is £113,850.
