Speaking following the Waterfoot Hotel in Derry being evacuated due to a security alert.
Waterside Councillor Christopher Jackson said
“These security alerts are unacceptable. These actions will achieve nothing but cause great inconvenience to the local communities and businesses.
“Those behind these incidents need to come forward and supply a spokesperson to explain these actions. To date they have failed to do so as they are wrapped up in their own destructive agenda.
“These actions serve no republican agenda, of that I am certain.
“It is high time they stop these activities and catch up with the rest of society.”
