Sinn Féin councillor Packie McDonald has condemned the latest incident in a long list of fuel dumping cases. Fuel cubes were discovered this week on Grants Road, Jonesborough, which Councillor McDonald said had caused major inconvenience to the residents of the area after it was set on fire. “It has not only partially blocked the road but the fact that it was set on fire could have been potentially dangerous for anyone living in the area. “Those who are responsible for this latest incident have shown no consideration for the residents in the Jonesborough area, and have displayed a blatant disregard towards the environment and the damage they may have caused. He added, “I have been in contact with Environmental health and they have confirmed that they will be out to investigate the case, however, it could take up to several days for this waste to be removed, causing further annoyance for anyone wishing to access this road.”
