McCartney condemns attack on Airporter Bus

20 April, 2007

Sinn Féin Foyle MLA Raymond McCartney has condemned an attack on the Airporter Bus on the Foyle Expressway on Thursday night in which the driver was injured.

Mr McCartney said.

"This attack can only be described as mindless thuggery and those responsible should be ashamed of themselves. Unfortunately this isn't the first occasion in recent weeks that buses belonging to this company and others have been attacked.

"Most right thinking people will be baffled to find any motivation behind these attacks. It is frightening to think of the consequences if this bus had of gone out of control on the busy Foyle Expressway during rush hour traffic .There could have been a very serious accident.

"I hope that injured driver makes a full recovery and would I appeal for those involved in these attacks stop before someone is killed or seriously injured." ENDS
