The Police Service of Northern Ireland is investigating sinister graffiti in a loyalist area of Belfast mentioning Cabinet Office minister Michael Gove.
The message painted on a wall in Sandy Row included Gove’s name and an address above the words “We don’t forget, we don’t forgive”.
It is the latest example of anti-Northern Ireland Protocol graffiti that has appeared in loyalist areas in the region since the new Irish Sea trading arrangements came into operation.
Gove has co-chaired the joint EU/UK committee responsible for implementing the protocol and was a leading voice in the Vote Leave campaign.
Asked about the incident, the PSNI said: “We do not discuss the security of individuals and no inference should be drawn from this, however, we would never ignore something that could put an individual at risk.”
