Sinn Fein Crotlieve councillor for Newry and Mourne Council, Mick Murphy has called on children on the Carrickbawn Estate in Rostrevor, who are impeding the work of the Rivers Agency in implementing vital flood prevention measures in the area, to stop immediately.

Murphy has called on the children to cease anti-social behaviour

Speaking to Newry Times, Murphy blasted those responsible for the anti-social behaviour. He stated, “I was appalled to learn that children have been creating difficulties for this vital work which is being done to benefit their own community. It has been reported that they have been throwing stones at the digger, climbing on top of the shed and even trying to steal tools, among other activities. “Having been instrumental in getting this work carried out on behalf of the residents to prevent the kind of serious flooding problems that have occurred in the past, I would urge the parents of those responsible to ensure this activity stops.” He added, “I realise this is just a small minority of the children on the estate but it is vital for all that the workman can carry out these important measures without interference.”
