Jayne Dunlop said: “This graffiti is totally despicable. What is going inside the heads of the people who carried out this act of hatred. The community in Ballymoney will be annoyed at the disgraceful mindset and actions of the perpetrators.
“My thoughts are with the shop’s owners and their staff at this time of distress.
“This is a valued business which creates jobs and is putting money into our economy. No one should ever be treated like this.
“All our migrants are part of community and should be respected and made to feel welcome. Those who wrote this graffiti need to be caught and anyone who can help police with their investigation should contact them immediately.”
