“I received several complaints about a number of incidents there on Friday night. Sadly at this time of year we always see an upsurge in this type of activity. Not only is there a nuisance factor for local residents but there is also serious health and safety concerns about young people getting intoxicated. There is also a heavy responsibility on parents to ensure that their children are not getting caught up in this.

I have been in contact with the PSNI and raised residents’ concerns and asked for increased patrols in the area.
