Racist graffiti and swastika daubed on house in Co Armagh

Racist graffiti including a swastika symbol has been daubed on the door of a house in Co Armagh.

The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) said they are treating the attack as a hate crime.

Another door was sprayed with "C18", representing the hardline neo-Nazi organisation Combat 18, while two cars were also damaged.

It happened sometime between 6pm on Saturday and 12 noon on Sunday in the Orangefield area of Armagh.

While the attack has not been directly linked to the Brexit vote, there have been similar racist incidents across the UK in the wake of the referendum decision to leave the European Union.

The PSNI said: " No one has the right to intimidate or threaten any member of our community and we will not tolerate hate crime in any shape or form."

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on the non emergency 101 number quoting reference 660 260616.
