Paint thrown and slogans daubed at two Orange Halls

Police are investigating two overnight attacks on Orange Halls near Banbridge.

Paint was thrown at both Tanvally Orange Hall on Glebe Road, Annaclone and Corbet Orange Hall on Drone Hill Road, Corbet.

Dissident republican slogans were also daubed on the walls.

Chief Inspector Davy Beck said: “We are investigating both incidents as sectarian hate crimes and we would like to hear from anyone with information. Please call 101, quoting reference 178 01/07/16.

Local DUP MLA Carla Lockhart described it as a “disgusting attempt to incite and intimidate our community”.
