New security at scene of GP's ordeal

Security at an out-of-hours centre in Northern Ireland where a GP was attacked by thugs wielding baseball bats has been drastically improved.

The Moylinn Medical Centre in Craigavon, Co. Armagh, has had fencing improved and alarms and CCTV installed, according to Angela Smith, minister for Health, Social Services and Public Safety.

Dr Sandra Elliott, a GP in Omagh, was attacked as she left the centre in her car after a shift in October. She has said she will never work at the centre again.

Mrs Smith said the Southern health board was considering relocating the centre.
