McNamee describes bus shelter vandalism as ‘wanton acts of destruction’

Laura McNameeEast Belfast Alliance councillor Laura McNamee has condemned those behind the destruction of several bus shelters in her constituency. A number of shelters throughout East Belfast were smashed by vandals overnight, on the Newtownards Road and Old Holywood Road, as well as the Ballyhackamore and Ballybeen areas.

Councillor McNamee said the actions were "wanton acts of destruction".

"The people who carried this out have nothing positive to add to society and they are simply committing damage for the sake of damage.

"Adshel, who maintain the shelters, are going to have to spend thousands of pounds to get this fixed and in the current economic climate that is money that could have been spent elsewhere.

"The shelters are used by schoolchildren and other members of the public, and broken glass lying around them could have led to an even more serious situation. I would call on those who destroy public property to think again about the consequences of their actions."
