Alliance South Antrim candidate Cllr Alan Lawther has condemned the violence in Newtownabbey on Tuesday night. Stones and fireworks were thrown by youths onto the Ballyclare Road from the New Mossley Estate.

Alan Lawther said: “This is just mindless violence. There was absolutely no justification for this attack. I am only glad that no one was hit by any of these missiles.

“There is no support for those behind this incident. I hope they will get the message that they must stop before someone gets injured.

“I would urge anybody with any information about this incident to contact the police.”
