Independent TD Mattie McGrath was forced to shut down his website after an unidentified party 'hacked' the website.

Mattie McGrath's website was 'hacked' yesterday to redirect to "inappropriate sites".

In a statement issued last night, McGrath asked users to "avoid clicking on any of the links to my website" while his team worked on having the "difficulties... taken down or resolved".

"Apologies for any inconvenience caused".

The TD's website has now been restored.

McGrath confirmed to the Irish Examiner that the matter has been reported to the police.
