POLICE are investigating after vandalism at a church in Co Fermanagh.

The PSNI said graffiti and damage was caused to the Church of Ireland in Newtownbutler "in the last few days".

In a post on Facebook, it appealed for anyone with information to contact them.

"Please folks these places of worship have a lot of emotional meaning to a lot of people think about your actions and how it could affect the people in your own community," police said.

UUP councillor Victor Warrington said it was a "despicable act of vandalism", which had "caused much anguish and disgust among local people".

"To attack any place of worship is a sad reflection on our community," he said.

"This type of behaviour has to be unreservedly condemned."
