Loyalist parade to avoid death area.

A LOYALIST parade in Coleraine on Friday night will keep away from the area where a Catholic community worker was beaten to death by a loyalist mob last weekend.

Organisers of the Pride of the Bann band parade voluntarily curtailed the parade in a move welcomed by the Parades Commission, which said it could have damaged community relations not just in the Co Londonderry town but across Northern Ireland.

The commission met yesterday to consider the parade route amid the tensions raised by the murder of Kevin McDaid, but was saved from having to issue a rerouting order..
