Alex Easton MLA and his colleague, Councillor Wesley Irvine are deeply concerned and alarmed at the potential for a bank and fence collapsing in Bloomfield Estate.

Speaking today Alex Easton MLA said:

“Having spent the good part of Friday in Bloomfield estate both myself and Councillor Wesley Irvine were deeply concerned to see the state of the banking and fencing at the rear of the pensioners bungalows on Ballyree Drive, Bloomfield estate. I believe that it is only a matter of time that the fencing and banking will collapse and we are deeply concerned that a child or teenager will be hurt as a result. This area is played in and used as a short cut by children and teenagers to get through fencing into the Industrial Park at Balloo, the bank is currently being held up by the fencing and is budging out at a precarious angle. We will be alerting the issue to the Councils Environmental Officer to see what can be done to fix the earth bank and fencing to ensure there is no collapse and that no one will be hurt.”
