Fews area Sinn Féin Councillor Pat McGinn has appealed to those engaged in entering the works compound at the bottom of Highstreet Hill to stop.

Highlighting the serious danger issues the Councillor said, “The contractors are doing much needed road works throughout the area and equipment has been removed from the site. That is a criminal offence, however the issue of young people entering the compound and the buildings surrounding Bessbrook Mill is a major cause of concern for both the contractors, myself and local residents.”

McGinn continued, “Someone could be easily killed or seriously injured here. This is not a playground and I would appeal to anyone trespassing into this compound to stop”.

The Councillor explained that he and Councillor Turlough Murphy – a member of the Policing and Community Safety Partnerships (PCSP) – had discussed the situation with the contractors, local police and residents. “Actions have been agreed to ensure that those trespassing the site will hopefully be apprehended.”
