Appeal for restoration of Housing Executive services after hijacking – Campbell

Sinn Féin Councillor Kevin Campbell is to contact the Housing Executive (H.E) in Derry today to make everyeffort to get repair services restored after they were withdrawn in large parts of the Creggan and Bogside areas after a workers van was hijacked  in Creggan yesterday.

Councillor Campbell said “This must have been a very frightening experience for the driver of this van and I offer my full support to him and also to the Royal Mail, Asda and Translink workers who were victims to similar incidents the past 24 hours.

“Following the incident in Creggan the Housing Executive has now withdrawn all their repair services to a wide area of the Moor ward. This means that many households are now without essential maintenance and the repairs scheduled will be pushed back.

“I will be in direct contact with the H.E today to try and get these services restored as soon as possible.
