Nine men have been jailed on charges arising from the death of Catholic community worker Kevin McDaid.

The 49-year-old father-of-four died in May 2009 after being assaulted in what the judge described as "an ugly sectarian attack fuelled by alcohol".

The attack occurred when around 40 loyalists arrived at a housing estate in Coleraine in Co Derry to remove Tricolour and Celtic flags in the area.

Trouble flared after a Rangers football club secured the Scottish league on the last day of the season.

The nine men were sentenced to between six months and eight-and-a half years in prison.
