Commenting after a car was set on fire close to the local community centre in Ballymagroarty and also a number of reported so called “joy riding” incidents in the area.
Sinn Féin Councillor Eric McGinley said
Once again those involved in these actions have only succeeded in terrorising their own communities by inflicting inconveniences upon them. The last thing local people want to see is an upsurge of this sort of activity.
I would appeal to anyone with even the slightest piece of information in regards to those behind this incident or those taking part in “death riding” to bring it forward to the PSNI straight away.
