A BUST of Andrew Bonar Law should be placed in Coleraine Town Hall to mark the centenary of his appointment as Prime Minster.

The memorial would also serve as a reminder of his close links to Portrush, according to the group behind the proposal.

Bonar Law was Canadian-born, but from an Ulster Scots family whose roots lay firmly in North Antrim.

His father's family hailed from Maddybenny just outside Portrush.
