Concern at PSNI operation in West Belfast

3 November, 2006

Sinn Féin West Belfast councillor Marie Moore has expressed concern at the PSNI operation in the St James' area of West Belfast when it appears that a van was forced off the motorway into a residential area and that the PSNI then fired a number of shots in the area.

Cllr More said:

"This PSNI operation appears to have been carried out with absolutely no regard for the safety of the people of this community.

"I am very concerned at reports that this van was forced off the motorway into a built-up residential area and that a number of shots were also fired by the PSNI in an area where many children and families would have been going about their business." ENDS
