Man held after car of community worker attacked in north Belfast

By Amanda Ferguson

A community worker's car has been vandalised for the second time in recent weeks in an incident thought to be linked to an ongoing loyalist feud.

The windows on Rab McKee's car were smashed and the bonnet dented in the Woodvale area of north Belfast at around 10.30pm on Saturday night.

A man was arrested after CCTV footage of the attack was examined by police.

Footage of the attack reveals images of a man wearing a hooded top and scarf over his face approaching the vehicle parked in Bray Street.

He is then seen hitting the car several times with a brick and running away from the scene.

A man was arrested by police a short time later.

Meanwhile, a house in the Shore Road area of north Belfast was also targeted at the weekend.

Windows were smashed in the attack on the York Road property.

In April, Mr McKee claimed a rival tried to run his car off a busy road as tensions continue to simmer between competing loyalist factions in north Belfast.

He said he was driving alone along the Limestone Road when another vehicle repeatedly swerved in his direction in an attempt to force him into a collision.

At the time Mr McKee, chairman of the anti-Agreement Protestant Coalition political party, said he had no affiliations with any paramilitary group.
