Threat to Dept of Infrastructure workers should be immediately lifted – Campbell

A threat to Department of Infrastructure workers in Derry should be immediately lifted, Sinn Féin Councillor Kevin Campbell has said.

He was speaking after it emerged that The Department of Infrastructure has withdrawn services from Creggan following threats made to workers in the area this week.

“This threat is entirely unacceptable and should be lifted immediately,” he commented.

“Here we have people out trying to earn a day’s living and providing an essential service for the people of this area and some group or individuals have taken it on themselves to threaten workers.

“This means the area is now without a Road Gritting service and essential road safety maintenance work.

“Whoever is behind these threats they need to step forward and publicly withdraw them immediately.
