Threat to Workers and Bomb Scare Condemned

Sinn Féin Cllr Keith Haughian has condemned the threatening of railway workers in North Lurgan and an accompanying bomb scare.

Cllr Haughian said:

' The Rail Workers were carrying out an upgrade to the main Belfast to Dublin rail line in North Lurgan when they were approached by masked men one of whom may have been armed. The workers were told to down tools and leave the area. A bomb warning was also made.

" Those responsible for these actions need to explain what they are about.

" The company doing the work to the lines have agreed to carry out significant work to a local GAA club free of charge and this is how these people repay the firms workers.

Concluding Cllr Haughian said:

It is long past time these individuals wised up and got off the backs of the people of North Lurgan.
