ALEX EASTON MLA CONDEMNS ATTACK ON PARAMEDICS IN BANGOR.

Alex Easton MLA has today condemned an attack on paramedics while trying to treat a patient.

Speaking today Alex Easton MLA said:

“I have to really question what our society is coming to when paramedics are attacked for tying to help someone, and to also be verbal abused by a crowd. This is a sad ordeal that these paramedics had to endure when all they were doing was trying to help someone, they should not have to endure such an ordeal and those responsible should be ashamed of their actions. I would thank the PNI for their help in dealing with this situation and also praise the bravery of the two paramedics for doing their job under difficult circumstances.”

ALEX EASTON MLA CALLS FOR A DOG PARK FOR BANGOR.

Alex Easton MLA has today called for a dog walking park for Bangor.

Speaking today Alex Easton MLA said:

“I believe it is time to give some thought by the Council for the creation of a dog walking park for Bangor. There are no exclusive areas for dog walkers that dog owners can take their dogs, were they can walk their dogs in peace and interact with other dogs. I believe other councils do have this type of facilities and they are very successful. I believe that Ards and North Down Council need to also look at providing a facility exclusively for dog owners and their dogs.”
