McCrea condemns tyre slashings

DUP MLA and member of the Policing Board, Ian McCrea, has hit out at those responsible for slashing tyres of a number of vehicles in Maghera.

“I totally condemn the actions of those who were responsible for slashing the tyres of a number of vehicles at Beagh Villas,” he said. “These mindless acts have been committed without regard for people’s safety, not to mention the cost that will now be incurred by those affected.

“I believe that these actions are to be condemned by all and I would whole heartedly encourage anyone with information to come forward immediately to the police in order to avoid such disgraceful behaviour in the future.”
