Lunn condemns Dunmurry hoax alert

Alliance Lagan Valley MLA Trevor Lunn has condemned a hoax alert in Dunmurry which caused an older people’s care home to be evacuated. The suspicious object was found at Oakvale Gardens but was declared a hoax and residents were able to return at around 2.30am this morning.

Trevor Lunn MLA said: “I am outraged that these elderly residents had to be evacuated from the home because of the actions of these thoughtless thugs. This caused real disruption and was undoubtedly a very traumatic experience for the residents.

“This hoax meant that valuable police time was wasted when it could have been better spent on fighting crime.

“If anybody has any information about this alert then they should contact the police.”
