Alliance condemns trouble in Newtownabbey

Newtownabbey Alliance Councillor Billy Webb has condemned trouble in the O’Neill Road area of Rathcoole last night. The trouble started around 9pm last night, with a car and bus being burned out and stones being thrown at police vehicles.

Cllr Billy Webb said: “This was a despicable night of disorder. There can never be any justification for trouble of this nature and no-one should try to provide excuses for those who indulge in thuggery.

“We need calm in the area to allow people to get on with their lives free from disruption and fear. It’s despicable that a small number of people can bring themselves to wreak havoc in their local community.

“Those behind this trouble must be caught and I appeal to anyone with information on last night’s events to contact police immediately.”
