Long condemns Braniel school arson

Castlereagh Alliance Councillor Michael Long has expressed disgust at those who carried out an act of arson at Braniel Primary School last night. A bin was set on fire and it spread to a fence and an outbuilding.

Cllr Michael Long, who is also Chair of the Alliance Party, said: “This school plays a pivotal role at the centre of the community in the Braniel area and this incident is very unsettling.

“Why would anyone want to carry out a pointless and destructive act like this? This incident has angered the community.

“A message needs to be conveyed that people who carry out acts of this nature will be caught. I hope the authorities can apprehend these individuals. If anyone has information that could assist police in relation to this incident, they should contact them immediately.”
