Sinn Féin Councillor Mickey Cooper said
“Following being contacted by parents and youth workers concerned about the use of an abandoned warehouse in the Pennyburn area by large groups of young people at the weekends and the obvious dangers this presents I contacted the PSNI and the letting agents to make sure they kept an eye on the site and increase security around it. And to see what could be done to secure the site.
I am pleased to have received correspondence from the letting agents that the landlord is sending in a team of workers to secure the building as soon as possible.
I also hope by highlighting this case it alerts parents to what has been going on there and dissuades young people from going anywhere near it in the future
