O’Donnell condemns Short Strand security alert
Sinn Féin East Belfast Councillor Mairead O’Donnell has condemned those behind a security alert in the Madrid Street area of Short Strand.
Cllr. O’Donnell said:
“The ongoing security alert in Madrid Street has caused significant disruption to local residents this morning with many homes being evacuated and the street closed.
"Short Strand Community Centre has been opened for use by residents that have been evacuated from their homes.
“Those responsible for this morning's disruption have shown complete disregard for the community in Short Strand.
"If this does prove to be a viable device, those responsible must be condemned in the strongest possible terms.”
