#Fishing - “An attack on fishermen” is how the Lough Neagh Fishermen’s Co-operative described the the loss of their new fishing patrol boat by arson, as BelfastLive reports.

The pilot boat was delivered to the co-op only two weeks before the incident in the early hours of Saturday morning (27 January) at the Co Tyrone quay where it was moored.

The PSNI is appealing for information on the arson attack perpetrated by two masked men in the Anneter area of Cookstown shortly after midnight on Friday night.
