Sinn Féin councillor Packie McDonald has described revelations that ammunition was found close to a Newry primary school on the Chancellor’s Road as ‘worrying’.

McDonald was reacting after Newry Times exclusively revealed this week that police in Newry recently discovered lethal rounds, which were left in the open during the day close to a Primary School in an area that children would regularly frequent.

Speaking to Newry Times, McDonald stated, “This is a very worrying discovery particularly due to the close proximity to a primary school. Thankfully schools are closed and no child came in contact with this lethal ammunition but we don’t know how long it has been lying there so there is every chance it could have been there during term time.”

He added, “Those who left it by the side of the road must not have much regard for the local people living here walking and driving the road on a daily basis.”
