Police are treating an incident of vandalism at an Orange Hall in south Belfast as a sectarian hate crime.
Sergeant Matt Boucher said the incident of criminal damage was reported around 10am on the morning of the Twelfth celebrations.
He said that a number of “offensive stickers” had been placed on an Orange Hall sometime between 10pm on Sunday July 11 and 9am the following morning.
The stickers have subsequently been removed and enquiries are ongoing into what is being treated as a sectarian hate crime.
Enquiries are continuing and at this stage, the incident is being treated as a sectarian hate crime.
The incident follows another report of a sectarian graffiti attack on Rasharkin Orange Hall which was discovered on Thursday morning.
A lewd picture and the word IRA was daubed next to a door of the property.
A spokesman for Rasharkin District LOL No.5 described the incident as “disappointing” saying it was designed to stir up sectarian tensions.
