McCann slams bus lane attack

18 April, 2018 - by Fra McCann


West Belfast Sinn Féin MLA Fra McCann has condemned an attack on a Department of Infrastructure worker on the Falls Road yesterday.

It’s understood a woman was inside a bus lane camera car when a man jumped on the bonnet and windscreen of the car before grabbing the woman by the throat.

Fra McCann said: “This is the second such attack in weeks where a person has been attacked whilst carrying out a days work.

“This should be condemned by everyone and the fact that it was carried out in broad daylight again highlights the difficulties faced by this community in the battle against criminal behaviour.

“The people who carry out these attacks do not speak for the West Belfast community and they need to stop immediately.”
