Weekend attack on Fire Service disgraceful

10 February, 2008


Sinn Féin Councillor Tony Hassan has condemned those involved in an attack on the Fire Service leaving the scene of a fire at premises at Lenamore Business Park on Saturday night and has appealed to local businesses to ensure that all materials are secured at night time so they cant be used to start fires.

Councillor Hassan said:

"I condemn outright those involved in the disgraceful attack on the Fire Service leaving the scene of a fire at the Lenamore Business Park on Saturday night .These attacks have to stop, they serve no purpose what so ever and could have led to serious injury.

"It is the support of the local community that is vital in putting the message out that these attacks will only have a detrimental effect on this area and the people involved should be made aware of the potential consequences that these attacks could have.

"I would also appeal to businesses in the area to ensure that all materials on their premises are secured overnight ,in particular wooden pallets, so they cannot be used to start any fires." ENDS
