A racist attack on a house in Co Down has been branded a "disgusting incident".

At around 8.50pm on Tuesday, a window in a house at Primacy Park in Bangor was broken and graffiti was sprayed on a gable wall.

Police have appealed for information.

Alliance councillor Karen Douglas described the attack as a "disgusting incident and the vast majority of people will rightly condemn it".

"I am relieved to hear no-one was at home at the time of this attack, but this still must have been a distressing incident for the residents of the property. I have reported it to Council officers, who will be urgently removing the graffiti," she said.

"There can be no tolerance in our society for such blatant intimidation and racist views. Bangor is a welcoming place where the population deplore this sort of behaviour, so this is not truly reflective of the town".
