Fews area Sinn Féin Councillor Roisin Mulgrew has said that the overnight incident in Bessbrook where a businesses was broken into, robbed and vandalised was deeply concerning and had further angered the local community. “The attack on this locally owned business premises which has served people and communities for generations can only be described as despicable. “Those engaged in this type of criminal activity need to be caught and face the full rigours of the law. Anyone with information should pass it immediately to the PSNI.” The local Councillor also confirmed that fears of the rising anti-social behaviour and criminal activity had been aired at a recent Community Safety Public meeting she had facilitated. “This most recent incident has further angered the local community. At a recent Public Community Safety Meeting in Bessbrook the general feeling from those present was that a higher profile, targeted and more robust policy in regards to anti social and criminal activity in Bessbrook needed to be adapted by the PSNI and all agencies concerned with Community Safety and the Health and Well Being of Communities,” she added.
