Hendron shocked by attacks on East Belfast buses

Alliance Belfast Council Group Leader, Cllr Maire Hendron, has condemned those involved in attacks on several buses in the Castlereagh Street area of East Belfast on Wednesday night. Four buses and a car were hit by stones which were thrown by a group of youths. Four women were injured.

Cllr Maire Hendron said: “This was completely reckless behaviour, carried out by those who have no regards for the consequences of their actions.

“This must have been a very frightening experience for the people in these vehicles. I hope that those who were injured will be able to make a swift recovery.

“This incident could have been far more serious had a driver lost control of their vehicle. If anybody was in the area at the time or knows any information which may be of help to the PSNI as they investigate these attacks, then I would urge them to contact the Police or Crimestoppers.”
