Sinn Féin Waterside Councillor Christopher Jackson commenting after a deliberate fire at Immaculate Conception College.
Councillor Jackson said “There have been a number of incidents at this site over the past two weeks. A number of attempts have been made to set the old building on fire .Tools have also been stolen from the site.
I have been on the ground each night with local community workers trying to prevent this carryon. A lot of this is being carried out by a very small group aged no more than 14-15yrs old.
This is the last thing this area needs, a lot of people are working very hard to put on positive community summer schemes for our young people.
