Sinn Féin councilor Gerry McCabe has slammed those responsible for destroying a digger machine at the Bone Hills Marrowbone Park where a new 3G sports pitch is being built.
The Ardoyne councilor said:
“This is a disgusting act of vandalism and is clearly an attack on the whole community. Many people have been working for a long period to make this sports’ facility a reality and work just started recently.
“I call on anyone with any information on who is responsible for this to contact the PSNI. While this is a set back for the construction of the pitch, it will not stop it going ahead. A tiny minority of thugs will not prevent this community from moving forward and the people of the area having the facilities they are entitled to.”
