Sinn Féin Councillor Kevin Campbell has slammed those behind tampering with lifebelts located on the riverfront in Derry .
His comments follows news from the Foyle Search and Rescue that lifebelts have been removed and tampered with over recent weeks.
Councillor Kevin Campbell said “I am disgusted that someone has been tampering with the lifebelts along the riverfront.
It’s a very sad state of affairs that anyone would even contemplate doing this sort of thing. I saw throughout my year as Mayor the work and dedication of the volunteers of Foyle Search and Rescue and the importance of having lifebelts along the riverfront and the Peace Bridge.
I would urge anyone with information on the culprits to contact the PSNI straight away.
