SDLP Newry and Armagh MLA Dominic Bradley has condemned those behind a security alert in Newry last night, during which police officers were attacked with bricks and petrol bombs. Speaking to Newry Times, Bradley said: “The incident last night was deplorable – a hoax alert which disrupted the community yet again. The hoax was compounded by the disgusting acts of those who attacked police with bricks, stones and petrol bombs, endangering lives and adding to the pressure they were under as they attempted to protect the community.” He continued, “It is particularly galling that all this took place close to Daisy Hill Hospital and on a route which would affect the city centre, disrupting commuters and, most worryingly, those trying to get to a place of treatment. Events like these do nothing to further any cause and are to the detriment of everyone. However, I know that the community’s resolve against the perpetrators of these alerts is strong and unwavering.” “I would like to thank the police and the army technical officers for the work they did in making sure the area was secure and I appeal to anyone who has any information on either the original suspicious object or those who attacked the police to contact the PSNI or Crimestoppers as a matter of urgency,” Bradley added.
