Sinn Féin Councillor Brenda Chivers has said it was sheer luck a local man wasn’t killed by a British Army truck speeding through the Greysteel Village.

Councillor Chivers said,

“The man was standing on a traffic island awaiting to cross the road had a water bottle knocked out of his hand by one of three British Army trucks travelling through the village.

“The trucks were travelling at high speed and it was fortunate that he wasn’t injured or killed by these trucks.

“I have raised concerns before about the safety of the local population due to the activities of the British Army maneuvers being carried out in the Drumsurn area and this incident only reinforces that.

“The British Ministry of Defense must stop these maneuvers immediately and remove all British military personnel from the area.

“It is unacceptable to use the region for training for areas like the Gabon in Africa while the British MOD have acres of similar terrain in Britain where this training can be carried out away from the civilian population.”
