Town centre is not a playground warns Bradley

1 Mins read

Reports of groups of up young people running riot through Coleraine Town Centre have been described as ‘extremely worrying’ by MLA Maurice Bradley.

Bradley has been contacted by several town centre residents and business owners in relation to anti-social behaviour over the past couple of weeks.

“We had bother in the town centre last summer with the same thing happening, these young people cannot be allowed to continue with this behaviour.

“Those responsible are gaining access to the roofs of properties not only placing themselves in danger but also costing local business money to repair the damage that they are causing to the roofs of buildings.

“The stark reality is that these young people could find themselves with a criminal record, something that could have a knock on effect when they come to applying for work or university.

“Residents in the town centre, many of whom are elderly are extremely anxious about the antics.

“At a time when we are trying to sell our town centre to potential investors, issues like this do nothing to help,” said Bradley.

The MLA has been in touch with the PSNI about the situation, he added: “I have been assured that the PSNI are increasing patrols in and around the town centre in a bid to resolve the problem.”
