O'Dowd calls for end to online abuse
John O'Dowd MLA has described the online abuse suffered by constituency colleague Carla Lockhart as wrong and inexcusable.
Mr O'Dowd said:
"I disagree with many aspects of Carla's politics but there is no excuse for the online personal abuse she has suffered.
"The online bullying of Carla and other public representatives particularly women by online trolls must end."
