It follows a spate of incidents on Monday night in which cars and homes were damaged and racist slogans were painted on walls in five locations.

Police said they believe the eight attacks were linked and were orchestrated.

Two 22-year-old men and another man aged 20 were arrested on Wednesday evening.

They have all been taken to Musgrave police station for questioning.
