Armed gangs not wanted in North Belfast – Sinn Féin Councillor

17 May, 2013

Sinn Féin North Belfast councillor Danny Lavery said the people of North Belfast do not want armed gangs in their areas.

The local councillor was speaking after an 18-year-old was shot in both legs in the Cliftonville Road area last night.

Councillor Lavery said:

“Armed gangs are not wanted in North Belfast. People are moving forward and there are systems in place for making sure the PSNI do their job and police this community.

“These armed gangs only strike fear into the community and those involved in the them should stop and examine the negative impact of their actions.

“There is a lot of positive work going on in North Belfast by community groups and organisations and they are showing courage and focusing on the way ahead, not going back.”
