Trevor Lunn MLA stated: “This was a despicable act of vandalism and destruction.
“What would motivate anyone to carry out an attack of this nature on such an important community facility? The Atlas Women’s Centre has done much for the people of Lisburn, and the community is appalled at this incident.
“It must have been devastating for the member of staff who opening up the premises on Monday only to find this scene of carnage. I hope that this incident will only be a minor setback, and that staff at the centre will not let the actions of a small minority hinder their excellent work.
“I would appeal to anyone who may have seen anything which might assist police with their investigation to contact them immediately. These thugs need to be brought to justice.”
