1 Mins read

Barry’s Amusements have issued a response to the Belfast Telegraph / Sunday Life video which shows a convicted paedophile on a ride within the premises, in the presence of children.

In a statement, which was posted over social media, a spokesperson for Barry’s said:

“We were extremely concerned and worried this morning to read the Sunday Life article which alleged that a child sex offender was permitted by those responsible for his supervision, to access the facilities at Barry’s Amusements during an organised trip to Portrush.

Our priority is to ensure the safety and well being of all our customers, especially children, and to ensure that they have an enjoyable experience in a safe environment. Barry’s Amusements does not permit entry to its premises by persons who are known to be a danger to the safety and well being of children in any circumstances.

It is therefore extremely regrettable that Barry’s Amusements was not contacted in advance or indeed at any time by any party who knew about this planned trip, so that we could take steps to prevent this from happening. Our permission was not sought for either the visit or the filming of the visit.

We are urgently requesting from the relevant authorities an investigation and explanation as to how this was allowed to happen. We wish to reassure the public that we will continue to work hard to ensure the safety and well being of all our customers.”
