McAllister condemns North Belfast violence

Alliance Councillor Nuala McAllister has condemned those behind the third night of violence in North Belfast.

Police have revealed petrol bombs where thrown at officers for the third night in a row on Wednesday night.

Councillor McAllister said: “This is absolutely ridiculous behaviour which must stop immediately.  These incidents must be condemned across the political spectrum.

“As a community the majority want to see North Belfast remain an inclusive welcoming place and those living under this constant fear and intimidation deserve better than the thugs within their own community are currently showing them.

“I would appeal to anyone involved to stop and think about how these intimidatory actions are affecting everyone and I would urge anyone with information to contact the PSNI as soon as possible, allowing the PSNI to get on with what they are tasked with doing – upholding the rule of law.”
