Sinn Féin MLA Gerry Kelly said tonight the lives of residents in a tower block in the New Lodge area had been put at risk by the recklessness of people who stored high explosives in a flat.
“A significant amount of explosives was uncovered by the PSNI today in a tower block in the New Lodge area,” said the North Belfast MLA.
“The lives of residents had been put at risk by the recklessness of those responsible for storing the explosives.
“The people who had these explosives in a highly built up area have nothing to offer the people of North Belfast.
“I call on those who did this to end their activity now before someone is killed or seriously injured.”END/CRÍOCH
