Maskey condemns security alert disruption

8 March, 2016 - by Alex Maskey

Sinn Féin MLA Alex Maskey has condemned the disruption that led to a security alert in west Belfast. 

Mr Maskey; 

"This security alert close to Woodbourne PSNI station in west Belfast has caused considerable disruption to the local area. 

"This led to a huge build-up of traffic in the area with the closure of the Stewartstown Road in the run-up to the evening rush hour. 

"There have been a number of security alerts in the wider west Belfast area and local people are fed up with the disruption that results from these pointless actions. 

"Whoever was behind this alert today needs to stop and think about the impact on the local community."
