Dickson condemns security alerts in Newry and Ballymoney

Alliance Justice Spokesperson Stewart Dickson MLA has condemned security alerts in Newry and Ballymoney today. There was an alert at Ozone Avenue in Ballymoney and another in the Marcus Square area of Newry after a bag was carried into a bank branch in the area and left there.

Stewart Dickson MLA said: “Despicable incidents like these cause massive disruption to the community and they can have a very negative impact on business and the economy in the areas affected.

“People are sick of this type of activity. We are building a peaceful future – people should be able to live free from fear and incidents of this nature have no place in our society. Northern Ireland is moving towards a brighter future and I am appalled that anyone could bring themselves to carry out activity like that seen in Newry today.

“I would appeal to anyone with information on these incidents to contact police immediately.”
