“This vandalism is achieving nothing except causing hurt and suffering to the loved ones of the deceased,” said Councillor McMurray.

“After the last attack, I said it was a despicable act and I reiterate that. I am appealing directly to those behind these now continuous destruction to stop. Your actions have no support in the wider community.

“I urge anyone with information on this attack or the previous ones to contact police about them immediately.”
