“Young people dicing with death” Burke

Sinn Féin Councillor Tina Burke has made an appeal to parents in Creggan to talk to their children about the dangers of climbing onto the roofs of buildings.

She made her appeal after several young people were spotted climbing onto the roof of the Old Library Trust buildings on Central Drive at the weekend.

Councillor Burke said “I was contacted by a number of concerned residents after they were shocked to see young people climbing onto the roof of the Old Library Trust (OLT) building.

“There is only so much you can do to prevent anyone getting onto the roofs of these buildings.

 “It is a very dangerous act these young people are involved in and that’s why I would urge parents in the area to talk to their children to say that this is wrong, this is dangerous and that they are dicing with death.
