12 May, 2008


Sinn Féin Spokesperson on Health and disability Michelle O'Neill MLA has urged the people responsible for attacking Fire Crews over the weekend to stop immediately.

Ms O' Neill said,

"Yet again we have seen more attacks on fire crews in the North.

"There were eight attacks in Belfast over the weekend against fire crews responding to call-outs.

"These attacks have to stop, they serve no purpose at all 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.

"The people involved should be made aware of the potential consequences that these attacks could have." Críoch
