Sinn Féin Councillor Mary Ellen Campbell said she welcomes a commitment from the PSNI to put extra resources into the Skegoneill area after young people were injured in fighting last night.

Mary Ellen Campbell said:

“I contacted police this morning following last’s night incidents in which young people were hurt after a pre arranged fight broke out between groups of youths in the Skegoneill area.

“Police have told me that some of the youths involved in the fighting were carrying weapons.

“The PSNI has committed to putting extra resources in the area to prevent a repeat of last night’s incidents and ensure that no one is seriously injured or killed and I welcome that.

“I appeal to parents and to anyone with any influence in the community to do all in their power to make sure that young people don’t get caught up in pre-arranged fights before we have a tragedy on our hands.”
