Sinn Féin’s Chris Hazzard has said sectarian abuse directed at his canvass team will not deter his campaign.
The South Down candidate said:
“While out canvassing in Rathfrailand at the weekend, one of my canvass teams was subjected to sectarian abuse.
“This stands in contrast to the positive response we have been getting on the doors as people realise the disaster Brexit will be and look towards a new future.
“This incident has been reported to the PSNI and will not deter me or any of my campaign team from engaging with and representing people across South Down.”
