Mr Robin Swann, the North Antrim Ulster Unionist MLA and a UUP Chairman of the Stormont Public Accounts Committee, has called on constituents “to rally behind the Dervock community and give whatever information they can to the police so that arsonists responsible for a bus burning will be brought for the courts”.
Assemblyman Swann, who is also UUP Chief Whip and North Antrim UUP Chairman, was speaking as he condemned “the disgraceful attack on Dervock band bus which was burned recently in an arson attack”.
Assemblyman Swann added: “The incident took place around 05.30 am on 22 July outside Dervock Orange Hall. If anyone has any information, please call the PSNI on 101 immediately.
“This was not only an attack on the band, but an attack on the entire village as the bus was use by other organisations in the community on many occasions throughout the year.
“The arsonists responsible for this despicable attack must be caught by the police and brought before the courts so that they can face the full weight of the law,” said Assemblyman Swann.
