14 June, 2016 - by Caoimhe Archibald

Sinn Féin MLA Caoimhe Archibald has praised the Fire and Rescue Service for their response in rescuing two youths who had climbed a crane in Coleraine on Tuesday evening.

The East Derry MLA said; 

"The Fire and Rescue Service must be commended for their response in ensuring the youths were brought safely to the ground.  

"I cannot stress strongly enough that young people, or anyone for that matter, should not attempt to repeat this behaviour.  

"I would encourage parents to have discussions with their children and young people to make them of the dangers. 

"It is also concerning that these young people were able to access the crane.

“I have raised this with the PSNI to look at ways to avoid a repeat of this situation in the future."
