1 Mins read

DUP MLA Maurice Bradley has called on the PSNI to step up patrols in the town centre. His call comes after rubbish was deliberately set on fire at the rear of retail premises on Monday night.

“I am not aware of who the perpetrators were, but I would warm them of the dangers of fire,” said the MLA. “Setting rubbish on fire may seem like a game at the time, but the consequences could be fatal. “Praise must go to Fire Service, their quick response prevented any further damage to neighbouring properties.

“I would urge the police to step up patrols in the town centre area and also make an appeal to parents. The onus is on us as parents and grandparents to be aware of where are children are and what potential dangers they could be getting themselves into.”

Sergeant Stephen Burns said: “This was reported to us shortly after 8:45pm. It was also reported that two youths were reported to have been seen in the vicinity of Union Street.

“Police attended along with the NIFRS.

“A large bin was completely destroyed.

“This is being as arson at this time, and I am appealing to anyone who was in the area around this time, or prior to the fire being reported and saw any suspicious activity in the area to contact police in Coleraine on the non emergency number 101, quoting reference number 1128 of 27/08/18.

“Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.”
