Two churches daubed with graffiti


Two Catholic churches in County Down have been daubed with sectarian graffiti.

St Patrick's Church, Dromore Street, and St Teresa's Church, Scarva Road, in Banbridge, were both targeted in the overnight attack.

Council workers have spent the morning attempting to clean off the slogans. It is understood both churches were targeted by hoax bombers last year.

Superintendent Mervyn Waddell said he was "disgusted" at the attack.

"Families have enjoyed good community relations for years and we will not let a small minority ruin that," he said.

"Those responsible have not only caused unnecessary upset to the local clergy and parishioners, but have also shown disrespect for their own community."
