McCann condemns Poleglass security alert disruption

29 November, 2015 - by Jennifer McCann

Sinn Fein MLA Jennifer McCann has condemned those behind a security alert which brought disruption to the Poleglass area of west Belfast.

Ms McCann said;

"This disruption brought about by this security alert is totally and utterly wrong and I condemn it outright. 

"A number of families have had to leave their homes after the discovery of a suspicious object in the area. I visited the scene and spoke to a number of residents affected they are obviously concerned at having to leave their homes. 

"This incident has brought nothing but disruption to the local community on a cold and wet Sunday evening

"I would like to pay tribute to local community workers who opened up the nearby community facility at Sally Gardens for use by anyone who had to leave their homes as a result of this alert. 

"Hopefully the residents will be able to return to their homes as soon as possible."
