PSNI needs to be proactive in East Belfast - Ó Donnghaile

30 October, 2014

Sinn Féin Councillor Niall Ó Donnghaile has said the PSNI needs to be proactive in stopping attacks in East Belfast.

Speaking after a number of homes were again attacked in the early hours of this morning Councillor Ó Donnghaile said;

"The PSNI is failing this community.

“Following a broad cross-party and cross-community meeting with the PSNI yesterday there was universal support for the PSNI to with the ongoing disorder in the East of the city. They've failed that test.

“At around 3:00am this morning homes in Bryson Street were again bombarded with brick, bottles, fireworks and paint bombs.

“The PSNI needs to be proactive in preventing attacks. They can no longer simply be reactive.

“We have a duty of care to ensure the safety of all residents living across the interface. We must also see continued political leadership to face down those determined to cause hurt and destruction."
