“As with previous attacks they are to be condemned in the strongest possible way. As we we are seeing a worrying increase in these attacks I will be meeting with senior Police Commanders to discuss how they are going to deal with this upsurge and give confidence to the local community that all is being do to catch those responsible.”

“Whatever it is alleged by those who carried out this attack, no one has the right to enter a property and inflict this sinister form of justice on anyone.

“I would appeal to anyone with information to contact the police, so that those responsible can be brought before the courts and dealt with according to the law and not in the fashion we saw meted out last night.”
