A man has been beaten with baseball bats by a gang of masked men who forced their way into his Dundonald home.

The attackers broke into the flat at Morven Park in the Ballybeen estate shortly after 2200 BST on Sunday.

After assaulting the 36-year-old victim, the gang smashed up the flat - breaking a window, some furniture and a LCD television.

Police have appealed for anyone with information about the attack to contact them.
