3 March, 2019 - by Keith Haughian

Sinn Féin Councillor Keith Haughian has condemned an attack on a BBC camera man in North Lurgan today.

Speaking following the attack he said:

“Firstly I want to commend the BBC crew who, despite this attack, insisted on completing the interview and their report.

“I also want to fully condemn the reckless actions of the attacker who violently struck the camera man.

“I welcome the swift response of the PSNI.

“In stark contrast to the idiotic actions of the attacker a lady nearby took the crew into her home – this demonstrates the true face of North Lurgan community. 

“Journalists should be able to do their job free from fear of attack or intimidation.”
