Larne residents ‘disgusted’ as foreign nationals are targeted in hate crime

The home of foreign nationals was daubed with paint and their car smashed during a hate attack in Co Antrim. The words ‘get out’ were spraypainted on the front door of the house while the windows of the property were smashed and almost all of the windows of the Audi were also broken. Police say they are treating yesterday’s early morning attack in the Herbert Avenue area of Larne as a hate crime. The two occupants of the house, who are understood to be Polish, moved into the area only weeks ago. A neighbour of the victims said she was “disgusted” by the attack. The resident, who did not want to be named, added that a number of foreign nationals live in the area but attacks of this kind are quite rare. “The two men only moved into the street four or five weeks ago and now this has happened to them,” she said. “I was absolutely disgusted by this attack, they are probably so frightened. “I heard smashing in the morning and away these people went.
