Sinn Féin councillor Gerry McCabe said today that the desecration of a memorial to three British soldiers was despicable.
The North Belfast councillor said:
“I’m saddened to hear that the memorial at the White Brae at Ligoniel to the three soldiers has been defaced by mindless thugs.
“This is a despicable act and I condemn those responsible for this shameful action.
“The actions of those involved in this are not representative of the people of this community.
“I would call on anyone with any information on this attack to report those responsible to the police. There can be no place for this type of behavior.”
