Those responsible for bomb alert have no regard for community – Kelly
Sinn Féin MLA Gerry Kelly said tonight that homes in Ardoyne were being evacuated as a result of a bomb alert.
Speaking from Ardoyne Gerry Kelly said:
“Families are being evacuated from their homes in the Velsheda/Alliance Avenue area of Ardoyne as a result of a bomb alert and local thoroughfares have been closed.
“My colleague Councillor Gerry McCabe has contacted Belfast City Council to open community facilities to assist those who have been forced from their homes.
“The Ardoyne Community Centre has now been opened to deal with the emergency.
“This has caused considerable disruption and inconvenience to local people and those responsible have clearly no regard for the interests of the community.”
