McCartney condemns those behind Waterside security alert
Sinn Féin MLA Raymond McCartney has condemned those responsible for a security alert in the Waterside area of Derry.
Mr McCartney said;
"This security alert has achieved absolutely nothing other than bringing disruption to the local community on a bank holiday.
"A number of local residents, including elderly members of our community have had to be evacuated from their homes as a result of this incident.
"Those responsible need to reflect on the fact that the vast majority of people in this city have moved on and do not want this.
"Derry has made great progress in recent years and we will not allow a tiny minority of people to drag us back to the past.
"They need to listen to the community and stop these futile actions immediately."
