Sinn Féin Councillor Claire Canavan has condemned a sectarian attack in Bombay Street last night in which stones were thrown over the peace wall causing damage to a number of properties. 

Claire Canavan said: 

"I condemn this sectarian attack which happened last night in Bombay Street. 

“Stones were thrown over the peace wall into Bombay Street during which a few windows of homes were broken. 

“I called with residents who were left extremely shaken after this attack. These attacks must end. People have suffered enough in this street over the years. 

“Sectarianism has no place in our society and I call on all political and community leaders to show leadership to end these attacks. 

“Anyone with any information on this hate crime should bring it forward to the PSNI.”
