McCarthy condemns tyre slashing vandalism: Portaferry

ALLIANCE Assembly member Alderman Kieran McCarthy has condemned the actions of those who slashed the tyres of residents in Portaferry last night.

Ald. McCarthy stated:

“This utterly pointless act of vandalism has caused severe inconvenience and cost to Portaferry residents. People are understandably angry that someone could destroy their property in such a callous and thoughtless manner.

“There is, sadly, a small number of young people who are engaged in anti-social behaviour in Portaferry. As we have seen today, they can make people’s lives a real misery. This is the type of activity where Anti-Social Behaviour Orders might prove their worth.

“Whoever was responsible needs to catch themselves on and think of the harm they are doing to their community. This is just unacceptable.”
