Rogan condemns Downpatrick anti-social behaviour

2 July, 2018 - by Emma Rogan

Sinn Féin MLA Emma Rogan has condemned those behind an upsurge in anti-social behaviour in Downpatrick Town over recent days. 

The South Down MLA said:

“I totally condemn those responsible for an upsurge in anti-social behaviour in Downpatrick Town which has seen a number of deliberate and dangerous gorse fires, alongside illegal fly tipping. 

“Those behind this type of behaviour have no regard for life or limb and it’s a relief that no one has been injured. 

“An emergency inter-agency meeting has been arranged and Sinn Féin will be working with the statutory bodies in an effort to collectively tackle the scourge of anti-social behaviour.

“There is a small element that continue to engage in dangerous anti-social behaviour against the local community. 

“I would appeal to parents to make it their business to ensure their children are not caught up in this type of activity.”
