Attacks on fire service have to stop

15 August, 2007

Sinn Féin Councillor for the greater Shantallow area Tony Hassan has condemned those involved in several attacks on the Fires services in the area in the past week.

Councillor Hassan said

"Over the past week there has been number of the attacks on the local Fire Service, the latest being at the Lenamore Business Park .These attacks have to stop ,they serve no purpose what so ever and could have led to serious injury.

"It is the support of the local community that is vital in putting the message out that these attacks will only have a detrimental effect on this area and the people involved should be made aware of the potential consequences that these attacks could have.

"On behalf of the local community I would like to take this opportunity to commend the Fire Service for the great work that they do. I would also call on all the residents, especially parents to do what they can to both educate the young people involved in these attacks and to be vigilant to ensure that these attacks do not happen again."
