Local residents in a loyalist area of south Belfast staged a protest last night against alleged anti-social behaviour by eastern European migrants.

The protest took place in the Donegall Road area, which has seen numerous racist attacks on migrant workers in the past couple of years.

However, those involved insisted that they were not racist and were simply trying to improve living standards in the derelict area.

Last night's demonstration took place just a day after a seven-strong gang armed with baseball bats attacked three houses in the area occupied by eastern Europeans.

One of the victims, a 51-year-old Polish man, was treated in hospital after being struck with a hammer during the violence.

Geez. How anti-social can you get? Attacking loyalist skinheads by beating your head against their baseball bats.
