House attacks ‘were hate crimes’ - police thumbnail

ATTACKS on houses in the Parkhall area of Antrim have been branded 'hate crimes' by the police.
Windows were smashed at properties in Portlee Walk, with the first coming under attack at around 11.15pm on Monday October 2.
One hour and 15 minutes later a second house was singled out.
It is understood that the tenants in each case originally hail from Romania.
The PSNI has confirmed that the incidents are being treated officially as 'racially motivated hate crimes' - though sources in the area deny this.
They have, however, indicated that there have been 'tensions' in recent weeks.
Whatever the motive, the incidents have been condemned by a number of local councillors.
