Dickson condemns bus attacks

Stewart Dickson MLA has criticised those who attacked two buses carrying members of the Orange Order home from Twelfth celebrations in Co Londonderry.

The Alliance Justice spokesperson was speaking after stones were thrown at the vehicles by youths in Greysteel yesterday (Monday). No injuries were reported.

Stewart Dickson MLA said: “I am appalled by this attack, which could have left a number of people seriously injured. A number of children were on the buses and it must have been extremely traumatic for them in particular.

“I hope those involved in this incident are brought to justice, so we can send out a strong message that this and similar occurrences are simply not acceptable. Anyone with information on this incident should report it to police immediately.”
