Sinn Féin MLA for West Belfast, Pat Sheehan, has slammed those responsible for leaving a shotgun in a children's play park on the Whiterock Road.

Speaking today Mr Sheehan said: 

“Those responsible for leaving a shotgun at the site of the new children's play park on the Whiterock Road have endangered this community.

”It is completely unacceptable and is to be condemned in the strongest terms.

"This is a new play park being being built in an area that sits beside both a primary school and the local leisure centre.

"It is fortunate that given the amount of children in the area that this has been found and taken off our streets.

"I would appeal to anyone who saw anything suspicious to bring that information to the PSNI."
