25 February, 2016 - by JJ Magee

Sinn Féin councillor JJ Magee has condemned those behind the latest security alert in the New Lodge area of Belfast. 

Councillor Magee said; 

"The discovery of a device in the New Lodge area this morning is worrying. 

"The local area was disrupted and a number of homes evacuated after the device was found in Fortfield Place and the street was closed. 

"Thankfully no one was hurt in this incident but it caused a great deal of inconvenience locally. 

"This is the second alert in the area this week and the local community is fed up with it. 

"Those behind this incident have nothing to offer the local community and need to end these pointless actions immediately."
