Portadown attacks

The homes of a DUP councillor and his son have been singled out for attack. At 78 year old Woolsey Smith’s home a window was smashed and a noose left outside. Meanwhile, graffiti was painted on his son’s home. Local DUP Councillor Smith believes it was carried out by Unionists opposed to power-sharing. Both victims have been involved in a recently publicised row in the Bethany Free Presbyterian church between pro and anti-Paisley factions.
