Culloville alert causes serious disruption - Hearty
Slieve Gullion area Sinn Féin Councillor Terry Hearty has said the ongoing security alert in the Culloville area has caused serious disruption to the local residents and businesses.
And the South Armagh councillor has said that this had been further compounded by the length of time it was now taking to deal with the alert.
Speaking from the scene Councillor Hearty said:
"There has been serious disruption caused to local residents and businesses and it is very obvious that those who created this alert care little about the community. The situation has been further compounded by the length of time it is now taking to deal with the alert.
Newry & Armagh Sinn Féin MLA Megan Fearon also said that those responsible for the security alert have nothing to offer the community.
"This has caused nothing but disruption, distress and frustration for people living in the area. This type of action has nothing to offer the community but hardship."
