Disgraceful attacks on bus services mush stop - McGuigan

16 December, 2005

Sinn Féin MLA for North Antrim Philip McGuigan has said he is 'disgusted and baffled' why anyone would wish to cause such damage to a service that is vital for our local community to function.

His comments come in light of the recent attack on Ballymena Ulsterbus station were to date £150,000 worth of damage has been caused this year.

Mr McGuigan said:

"This act can only be described as mindless thugery and those responsible should be ashamed of themselves. Unfortunately this isn't the first occasion that the buses have been attacked.

"Most right thinking people will be baffled to find any motivation behind these destructive attacks. Thankfully due to the good work of Translink there has been no disruption to the services for the local community this morning.

"If these attacks continue however, the cost of the disruption will be passed on to us as service users." ENDS
