McCann condemns device left in West Belfast

16 September, 2017 - by Fra McCann

Sinn Féin MLA Fra McCann has condemned those who left a device outside a home in the St Gall's Avenue area of West Belfast last night.

Speaking today the West Belfast MLA said:

"The consequences of what could have happened had this device gone off are too horrific to even imagine.

"This morning I have engaged both the PSNI and the local housing association to ensure urgent follow-up action is undertaken. I have sought additional police patrols in and around the area concerned. I have also been speaking to the Chief Executive of Choice Housing  and asked they work with residents who have been impacted or may have concerns.

"The people who carried out this attack last night have no place in our community."
