Derry Sinn Féin Councillor Sandra Duffy commenting after a number of overnight incidents in the Galliagh area said
“The people in the Galliagh community are angry this morning following a night of anti community behaviour from a large group of young people roaming through the area.
Their behaviour escalated throughout the evening finishing with a robbery of the local shop.
The shop is now closed this morning leaving the business owner losing money, staff losing pay and local residents unable to use a vital local service.
This activity must be challenged and addressed, whilst it is a policing issue it is also wider than this ,the community cant continue to suffer as young people think they can do whatever they want without consequence.
I will be addressing this through our community structures and will look for a multi agency response and solution.
