This does not define South Belfast, says Bradshaw

Alliance South Belfast MLA Paula Bradshaw has said enough is enough, after cars were burnt out overnight with police investigating as a racially motivated hate crime.

Paula Bradshaw MLA said: “It is extremely disappointing to be faced with yet another potential hate crime in the area and my thoughts are with the victims who have been left without vehicles.

“Any attack on local people is one too many and I know I speak for the majority who don’t want this type of behaviour to symbolise life in South Belfast. No-one should feel unsafe or unwelcome in their own home and I would urge anyone with information to contact the PSNI as soon as possible.

“I will be monitoring the situation very closely, especially as it is another serious attack in an area that has already been the focus of attempts to intimidate residents. South Belfast is a welcoming, inclusive place and those who are determined to pull it back to the past will not be allowed to succeed. Rather than divide, South Belfast will remain united in the face of these on-going incidents.”
