Graffiti including a swastika was discovered on the memorial at Joymount on July 6, while glass was also smashed on a bus shelter nearby.

The incident attracted strong condemnation locally, with elected and community representatives calling for the additional security measure at the location.

A spokesperson for Mid and East Antrim Borough Council confirmed this week that "temporary covert CCTV has been installed" at the memorial.
