The News of the World

A prison officer has been moved from his Co Antrim home and hidden because of a dissident republican murder plot.

The warder was whisked from Maghaberry village and taken to a secret location on Thursday after news of the threat was leaked.

The plot came as terrorist godfather Paul McCaugherty, 43, of Oglaigh na hEireann, ordered an escalation of the ongoing dirty protest inside the republican wing of Maghaberry Prison's Roe House.

In a statement, the Prison Service said the protest involved prisoners "fouling areas of their living accommodation by pouring urine, sometimes mixed with excrement, on to the landings. Staff have also had discarded urine aimed at them".
