Sinn Féin Councillor Kevin Campbell speaking after an overnight fire at the Telstar Bar on Central Drive in Creggan.

Fire last summer

Councillor Kevin Campbell said

“I visited the scene this morning and spoke to a number of members of staff who are shocked at this incident.

The Fire Service have said they are investigating the cause of the blaze.

Hopefully there will be more detail on this as the day progresses.

Concluding he said

Just ahead of summer holidays I would put an appeal out to the local community to keep an eye out for any incidents taking place in the Central Drive area.

Last year we had several incidents at the shops with a number of businesses being damaged,we cannot allow this to happen again this year.
