18 May, 2018 - by Kevin Savage

Sinn Féin Councillor Kevin Savage has condemned two hate crimes which took place in Banbridge on Thursday night.

He said:

"I unreservedly condemn two hate crimes which took place in Banbridge last night.

"Damage was caused to cars and property. Those involved struck in the dead of night carrying out their cowardly attacks as families lay sleeping.

"In the immediate aftermath of the attacks the local community have rallied around both families and neighbours reported the crimes promptly. 

“I commend the local community for their solidarity with the victims. They have demonstrated clearly that racism will simply not be tolerated in Banbridge.

“I urge anyone with any information on these hate crimes to bring it forward to the police.”
