Councillor Glenn Barr and Alderman Elizabeth Ingram BEM have called for more police resources to be dedicated to tackling anti-social behaviour in Rathfriland.

The issue is due to be discussed when the UUP representatives meet with senior PSNI officers in the area.

A statement issued by Cllr Barr and Alderman Ingram said: “We will be making a strong argument for more police resources to be made available in Rathfriland.

“Breaking bottles on the road for cars to get a flat tyre or for young children to fall on, this sort of behaviour needs tackled. Our residents deserve to live without this fear.”
