Youth set fire to bushes in City Cemetery -Kelly

I was contacted late on Saturday afternoon by a man who was going up to visit his father graves just before the City Cemetery closed. As he was driving from the Lonemoor Road gate up to the top of the cemetery he seen a couple of young boys about 12-13 years of age wearing hoodies setting fire to trees .He stopped his car and challenged them, they ran off up through the older section of the cemetery.COLLY

He used a couple of bottles of water he had in his car to put the fire out before it spread and he said it was lucky he was passing because  if the cemetery had been locked it would have spread .

Once again we are appealing to people of any age to respect the confines of the City Cemetery, there seems to incidents happening on an all too regular basis in there now and it needs to stop.
