Race-related incidents increasing in NI, says Equality Commission

The Equality Commission for NI says it is seeing an increase in race incidents.

Equality Commissioner Michael Wardlow was speaking after a boy of mixed-race was paid £3,000 in settlement of a racial discrimination case.

It arose from an incident when the 13-year-old was asked to leave a Currys PC World Store in County Down.

DSG Retail Limited, operators of Currys PC World, settled the case without admission of liability.
