Hassan slams overnight “so-called joy riding” incidents

Sinn Féin Councillor Tony Hassan commenting after number of incidents in the Carnhill and Galliagh areas  overnight ,said

“There were a number incidents of so-called joy riding in the Carnhill and Galliagh areas in the early hours of Sunday morning.Residents are rightly worried that someone will be seriously harmed by the actions of the reckless individuals involved in these car crimes.

A number of cars were abandoned in the area. I am now hoping to get them removed as quickly as possible.

It is vitally important that we identify and hold to account those responsible and I would encourage residents to provide us with any information which will assist us in removing these criminals from our streets.

In another incident the window of a home in the Altcar area was smashed.
