A robbery at a south Belfast primary school has been described as "appalling".

Twenty-one laptop computers and a washing machine were stolen from St Michael's Primary School on Ravenhill Road.

It is believed the thieves forced their way into the premises sometime between Wednesday and Thursday.

SDLP MLA Claire Hanna said: " It's absolutely infuriating that someone would break into a primary school to steal equipment that is used to help advance the education of local children.

"Aside from the loss of equipment, this appalling crime will also force the school to replace the 21 laptops that have been stolen, further stretching under pressure budgets."

Detective Sergeant James Johnston has appealed for anyone who is offered laptops for sale in suspicious circumstances to contact police on 101.
