McCartney condemns Derry security alert
Sinn Féin MLA Raymond McCartney has condemned those responsible for disturbances near a polling station in Derry last night.
The Foyle MLA said:
“The disturbances close to the polling station at St Paul’s Primary School which involved petrol bombs being thrown at police and a hoax bomb alert must be condemned.
“Those behind these incidents were clearly trying to undermine the democratic process but they failed to do so.
“They do not have the support of the local community who, despite the futile actions of those behind this trouble, continued to use the polling station.”
