McGinley condemns attack on Wheelchair taxi in Creggan

Sinn Féin Councillor Emma McGinley has expressed disgust after a local taxi which is used to transport disabled residents was attacked in Creggan.

Speaking about the incident, the Moor Councillor said:


“Last night a wheelchair access taxi belonging to a local taxi firm carrying an elderly passenger was attacked on Iniscarn Road.

“The driver and passenger were badly shaken and resulted in this vital service being removed from the community.

“We all know how hard the pandemic has hit our taxi drivers and this is the last thing that they need.

“I would appeal to parents in the area to speak to their children about the consequences of these actions and I will be speaking with local youth services to ask them to work with the young people to try and stop these types of incidents occurring again.”
