Youths risk their lives by playing at former quarry site

1 Mins read

A councillor is advising parents in the local area to warn their children about the dangers of playing at the former Maxwell quarry in Coleraine.

Speaking to Causeway Coast Community the DUP’s Philip Anderson said ‘Over the last number of days I have noticed an increase in the number of youths entering the former quarry site from the back of Harpurs Hill.

It is a very dangerous environment, the youths are putting their lives at risk playing there. I am very concerned that these youths are exposing themselves to risk of serious injury. I am asking parents to sit down and talk to their children to make them aware of the dangers and also to take the time to make sure you know where your children are and that, ultimately, they are safe.

I have been in contact with police and the owners of the site regarding security.’

Anyone with concerns should contact police on 101.
