The vast majority of republican flags have been removed from the Garvaghy Road in recent days.

The Portadown Times counted only three flags still flying on the road today (Tuesday).

It is unclear whether the removal of scores of flags is in any way connected to 150 loyalist and unionist flags being taken down from the town last week.

A source in the local community said the flags were not normally removed this quickly.
