Spate of graffiti attacks in Lisburn

Two Catholic churches have been damaged in overnight sectarian attacks on the outskirts of Lisburn, County Antrim.

It is believed the vandalism to both churches was in response to an attack on a war memorial in Stoneyford, which had paint thrown over it on Friday.

Both unionist and nationalist politicians have criticised those behind what appeared to be "tit-for-tat" incidents and said they would work to diffuse tensions in the area.

Nicola Weir reports.
