An eighth person has been arrested in connection with the murder of a Scottish man in County Londonderry.

The 17-year-old was arrested on Sunday over the murder of Ronald Mackie, 36, outside a football club in Tobermore.

Mr Mackie was attacked by a gang before being pushed onto a road, where he was hit by a car on 29 July. Police made a new appeal for information on Saturday.

Three men have already been charged with murder. Another teenager remains in police custody.

Two others were released without charge and another on police bail.

A week after the murder, police stopped vehicles and people in the Tobermore area to hand out leaflets appealing for information.

The victim, from near Stirling in Scotland, had been watching a band parade before going to the club.
