A man was struck in the arm by debris falling from a derelict building at Portstewart Promenade on Sunday evening.
Police were informed and the area around the building was cordoned off for a period of time.
East Londonderry DUP MLA Adrian McQuillan, who was in Portstewart at the time told Causeway Coast Community: “I was walking along the prom on what must have been the busiest Sunday of the year for Portstewart, I heard a loud bang and saw the tiles coming off the roof of the old Montague building and I couldn’t believe it.”
“It’s up to the Council to ensure that these buildings are made safe so that people can feel safe when walking along the promenade.”
MLA McQuillan contacted Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council yesterday who were completely unaware of the issue at the time but have said they will contact the owners of the building to resolve the issue.
A spokesman from the PSNI said: “Police received a report of slates falling off a building on The Promenade, Portstewart on the evening of Sunday,16th August. The relevant authorities were informed and the area was cordoned off for safety reasons.”
