SDLP West Tyrone MLA Daniel McCrossan has called for an end to disruption in the Strabane area after a number of security alerts.

Mr McCrossan said people in the area were fed up of their lives being disrupted by the incidents.

It follows another security alert in the Innisfree Gardens on Monday evening, with some residents evacuated from their homes.

West Tyrone MLA Mr McCrossan said:

“People in the Strabane area have experienced a very difficult few days and they want to see an end to their lives being disrupted. Children have missed school, elderly people have been forced out of their homes on cold nights and people are sick and tired of incidents like this on their doorstep.

“The incident on Friday has caused a huge amount of worry, frustration and anger, nobody in this area supports that kind of activity and cannot understand incidents like this happening repeatedly in their community.

“I would urge anyone involved in the incidents over the last few days to cease these activities at once and get off the backs of local people. I would also ask police to work constructively with the local community to keep disruption to a minimum, while ensuring everyone is kept safe and apprehending those behind these attacks.”
