Cllr Billy Webb said: “These scenes are simply disgusting and I wish those involved would let people live in peace. The local community must be freed from the violence and fear it has been subjected to by these individuals in recent days.
“These nightmarish events hurt the community and damage the positive image of Northern Ireland that so many people have worked so hard to build.
“People who take part in rioting are putting other people’s and their own future at risk. The public want peace and they deserve to have it.”
