Deputy Mayor Gary Middleton says vandals attacked murals and homes in the Fountain area over the weekend.

He said: “Sadly, attacks on the only Protestant estate on the Westbank of the city still continue by those who want to drag Northern Ireland back to the past and to raise tensions within our communities.

“I will be seeking to ensure the PSNI are doing all they can to prevent any further attacks on the Fountain area, Londonderry.”

The PSNI said they hadn’t received any reports of paint damage over the weekend but would ask anyone with information to contact them on 0845 600 8000.
