Alex Easton MLA has praised Bangor PSNI over safety measures after an old hand grenade was found at Stanley Road, Bangor.

Speaking today Alex Easton MLA said:

“Although this turned out to be an old decommissioned hand grenade, the fact that Bangor PSNI acted so quickly and ensured the safety of residents is worthy of praise. These types of incidents have occurred in Bangor quite a lot over the years with recent finds at Bangor Academy and Church Road. You never know if these old finds can be the real thing and the safety of residents must always come first, if you find anything like this its best to call the PSNI and make sure it’s safe.
