Fire crew come under attack in Portrush

1 Mins read

A Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service (NIFRS) crew came under attack while attending an incident in the Glenbush Area of Portrush this morning.

It is understood that no NIFRS personnel were injured in the attack, however, an appliance was damaged.

A PSNI spokesperson said “At approximately 3.40 am this morning, police received a report that criminal damage had been caused to a NIFRS vehicle responding to an incident in the Glenbush Drive area of Portrush.

It was reported that as the appliance was leaving the area it was struck with an object.”

A NIFRS spokesperson said “Shocked by the attack on our Firefighters in the Glenbush area of Portrush last night. Fortunately, no one was injured and we will be engaging with the Glenbush community to stop any further incidents. We need community support to do our jobs.”

UUP’s Councillor Norman Hillis expressed his disgust at learning of an attack on Fire Service personnel in Portrush. “I am really upset and disgusted that a fire appliance was attacked and damaged while attending a call out in the Dhu Varren area early on Saturday morning. Our brave firefighters carry out dangerous tasks on a daily basis and deserve our wholehearted gratitude and support.

I can hardly believe that anyone would attack them when they are out helping our community.

I sincerely hope that the perpetrators are caught and severely dealt with.”
