NO-ONE has the right to take the law into their own hands and be a vigilante, a leading North Antrim MLA said this week.

Mr Mervyn Storey was speaking after a gun attack on a house in Coleraine left a 61-year-old woman fighting for her life.

Since the spring there have been at least eight incidents in the area culminating in last Monday night's shocking shooting on the Bushmills Road in Coleraine (pictured above) which also left her son injured.

Coleraine PUP councillor Russell Watton says the perpetrators are conducting their campaign with the support of sections of the community.

The previous two attacks were in Stranocum and Bushmills.
