Police are investigating another spate of vandalism at a Belfast Bike station.

Sometime between 9.30pm and 10pm on Sunday bikes at the CS Lewis Square in east Belfast were damaged along with parts of the station.

A Belfast City Council spokesman said: “We are aware of this incident, and it has been reported to the Police.  We would urge anyone with any information on any incident of vandalism to pass this on to the PSNI.”

A PSNI spokesman added: "This morning (Monday 3rd July), police received a report stating that damage had been caused to bicycles located in CS Lewis Square on the Newtownards Road, Belfast.

"Police are appealing to anyone that may have any information to call 101, quoting reference 246 of the 03/07/17. Alternatively, information can be given anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."
