Alex Easton MLA has today condemned those responsible for setting hedges on fire’ as a large group of youths gather, in Ward Park

Speaking today Alex Easton MLA said:

“This is an absolute disgrace that youths have been setting fire to hedges, which have the potential to spread and destroy peoples oil tanks. This could have been a major incident with property destroyed and people killed. Those responsible need to consider their ation. I would praise the Fire Service for their quick response in dealing with the situation.

I am calling on the PSNI and Council anti-social behaviour team to deal with those involved in anti-social behaviour within the area as a matter of urgency; this is not wanted by the residents of the area.
