’If we can show they have no monopoly over us, we can move away from their grip’ – Lyra McKee’s partner Sara Canning

Social Affairs Editor and Presenter

Council buildings in the colours of the LGBT rainbow flag are to be lit up in Derry this weekend to mark the second anniversary of the killing of Lyra Mckee.

The journalist was shot dead while observing rioting in the Creggan area of the city in April 2019. Her family have made a recent appeal asking local people to help them “achieve justice for Lyra”.
