NIE van burned and workers threatened in Creggan
Sinn Féin councillor has condemned threats against NIE staff in the Creggan area of Derry last night.
Councillor Campbell said;
“What happened to this worker in Creggan is absolutely disgraceful. I visited the scene and local residents are very angry about what has gone here.
"NIE workers were in the Linsfort Drive area carrying out essential repairs when he was approached by a number of masked men and threatened and ordered to take a suspect device to Strand Road PSNI station.
"The workers left the scene and the van was set on fire a short time later.
"People in Rinmore Drive are now without electricity and understandably NIE were not able to return last night.
"The people behind this attack need to step forward and explain the rational behind it to this community."
