Councillor slams those behind pipe bomb alert
Sinn Féin councillor JJ Magee said those behind the pipe bomb alert in the New Lodge area last night are not wanted by the community.
The North Belfast councillor said:
“At the scene late last night I saw people having to leave their homes with children being lifted from their beds and for what?
“Whoever was behind this alert should explain to local residents what they have achieved by forcing families from their homes.
“The people of this area want to get on with their lives and trying to improve the future for their children without criminal elements causing distress and inconvenience.”
