Webb condemns those behind security alert

Alliance Councillor Billy Webb has condemned those behind a security alert in Newtownabbey.

A viable device was made safe after being found in the Felden development off the Mill Road. Residents were evacuated to the Valley Leisure Centre during the incident yesterday (Saturday).

“This sort of incident is carried out by people who represent absolutely nobody,” said Macedon Councillor Mr Webb.

“They have no regard for the lives of anyone in the community and I appeal to them to stop. My thanks go to the police and other agencies for dealing with this situation in what is close to a major shopping area on a busy Saturday afternoon.

“I urge anyone with information on this incident to contact police with it immediately.”
