Savage Condemns Play Park Arson Attack
Sinn Féin Councillor Kevin Savage has condemned an arson attack on Solitude Park in the early hours of Tuesday morning. He said:
"I want to first of all commend the local police force who intervened swiftly in the early hours of this morning. It was this swift intervention that significantly limited the damage caused. I want to also thank the Fire Service for their efforts.
"The mindless actions of those involved serve absolutely no purpose. Nothing is to be gained from setting fire to a children's play park."Those behind this attack have little to offer and their actions will be met with anger and disgust from the local community."The climbing frame has suffered considerable damage - in particular the ropes and safety netting.
"I have been in touch with council staff this morning to request that the park is assessed before it is opened to the public."
