Indian family 'forced out' of Londonderry home

An Indian family have said they have been forced out of their home in Londonderry because of anti-social behaviour.

The family say children as young as eight have attacked their house, and subjected them to harassment and verbal abuse.

"We've been told to 'go back to your country' and had the car windows smashed," they said.

The family added they are 'too scared' to stay and are moving to London.

"We've had to call the police three times," they said.

"There is no peace here, we are moving next month."

Another Indian neighbour said he has also been the target of anti-social behaviour.

He insists the attacks are not racially motivated.

The police said they were aware of incidents involving a family in the area.

" We are working with community representatives and others to offer support and resolve these issues," a PSNI spokesperson said.
