Alex Easton MLA has praised the bravery of a lady pensioner in her 80s for confronting an intruder in her home.

Speaking today Alex Easton MLA said:

“I firstly praise the bravery of the pensioner in her 80s and aplaud her determination not to allow her home to be burgled. I condemn those responsible as they are nothing more than cowards preying on the elderly in such a way. Those responsible need to be caught quickly, as I believe they may have also been involved in other burglaries over the weekend. Their actions are totally unacceptable and I would urge anyone with information to come forward to the PSNI so that they can be brought before the courts.”
