Campbell hits out at those behind disturbances

2 April, 2018 - by Kevin Campbell

Sinn Féin councillor Kevin Campbell has hit out at those responsible for a disturbance in Derry’s Creggan area today during which petrol bombs were thrown at police.

Councillor Campbell said:

“Everyone has the right to remember their dead with dignity and respect.

“However, the petrol bomb and stone attacks on the PSNI in Creggan today by masked individuals close to a commemoration were dangerous and disgraceful.

“Thankfully no one has been seriously injured but the police must now bring those responsible before the courts.

“Incidents like these, apart from the risk to life and limb, are in no one’s interests.

“I would caution young people in particular about getting caught up in this sort of behaviour and the community does not want to see incidents like these on the streets of Derry.”
