East Belfast Alliance MLA Chris Lyttle has welcomed the speedy removal of abusive and illegal graffiti at Tor Bank School, Dundonald, by the PSNI. Alliance representatives Naomi Long MP, Chris Lyttle MLA and Cllr Judith Cochrane noticed the graffiti during constituency work on Saturday morning and reported the offence to police who acted that afternoon.
East Belfast Alliance MLA Chris Lyttle said: “There is no place for this type of behaviour in society and local people were rightly outraged that children at this excellent school have been the target of such despicable abuse.
“I would like to express my thanks and that of the local community to the PSNI for the speedy removal of this graffiti. The individuals behind this act will not be allowed to intimidate or abuse our local children in this way and I would urge anyone with any information about this hate crime to report it to the police immediately.”
