Long appalled at security alert near school

March 12, 2012 5:13 PM

East Belfast Alliance MP Naomi Long has expressed disgust at a security alert in the Flora Street area of East Belfast near Elmgrove School. East Belfast Alliance Councillor Máire Hendron attended the scene of the alert and talked to people in the area.

Naomi Long MP said: "It is absolutely despicable that in the space of three days there have been three separate incidents in the area.

"It is deeply disturbing that some people appear to be willing to engage in this type of activity, with no regard for people's safety or for the disruption that their actions inevitably cause. I would appeal to anyone with information on this deeply worrying incident to contact police immediately."

Cllr Máire Hendron said: "The site of the alert is very near Elmgrove School and it is absolutely appalling that anyone could bring themselves to be involved in something like this. I visited the scene and talked to people in the area, and there is a palpable sense of shock at this."
