The Derry prisoner Tony Taylor addressed a rally held in Derry earlier today calling for his release on the two-year anniversary of his incarceration.

The 48-year-old was returned to prison after his licence was revoked by the then Secretary of State Theresa Villiers.

A protest was held in the city earlier today calling for Mr Taylor's immediate release, which began at the Bishop Street Courthouse before proceeding to the Guildhall Square.

A recording was then played of Mr Taylor where he spoke of how 'proud' he was of his family, and hit out at the decision to deny him legal aid.

He added that the battle against 'internment' would be 'long and challenging'.

The rally was also addressed by Mr Taylor's wife, Lorraine, and the Sinn Fein MP Elisha McCallion.
