Hassan appeals for stoning of vehicles on Racecourse Road to stop

Sinn Féin Councillor Tony Hassan has appealed for stone and egg attacks on cars in the vicinity of the traveller’s site on a rural section of  the Racecourse Road to stop.

Councillor Tony Hassan said

“I have been contacted by a number of motorists whose cars have been attacked by stone throwers  along a section of the Racecourse Road which has resulted in their cars being damaged.

Others have told me their cars were attacked with eggs which is an awful mess to try and get cleaned .

For anyone to have their car attacked either by stones or eggs it can be a very frightening experience, this is a rural section of the road and is the last thing anyone would expect.

I am appealing for these attacks to stop and if anyone has information on those responsible to contact the PSNI ,elected representatives or local community workers.
