Tierney: Safety of Residents Priority at Ederowen Security Alert

Speaking at the scene of the ongoing security alert in the Ederowen Park area of Derry, SDLP Cllr Brian Tierney said the alert was causing “upset and disruption”

He said:

“The ongoing alert at Ederown Park is causing upset and disruption as families have been evacuated from their homes.

“It’s an absolutely freezing night and I feel for these residents, many with small children, who had to leave their homes tonight. Those evacuated have been moved to a local community centre.

“The PSNI have assured me the are working to ensure the area is safe but they expect that the alert will last until the morning. There is no further update at this time. The priority remains to ensure all residents in the area are safe.

“I’ll remain at the scene, working with the PSNI and those in the community centre. As soon as I have a further update I will inform the wider community.”
