Published: 18 May, 2018

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

He said:

"Two hate crimes took place in Banbridge last night and I want to condemn them both wholeheartedly.

"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 rallied around both families.

"Neighbours reported the crimes promptly and an arrest was quickly made.

"The local community deserve high praise for this. They have demonstrated clearly that racism will simply not be tolerated in Banbridge."
