The woman, who is pregnant, and her two young children have had to leave their home following the racially-motivated attack.

Mr Robinson said, “This is a disgraceful attack on a family home and there should be no place in our society for those who engage in such hate crimes.

It is vital that we send out a united message against such attacks but also clearly state that those responsible do not represent the vast majority of people in East Belfast.

There has been a great deal of work carried out locally in building relationships and challenging some of the myths that exist around immigration and those who chose to make Belfast their home.”
