Anger after young people rip apart furniture which was dumped outside community building in Creggan area of Derry

Hi Alan
A Derry councillor has hit after a group of young people ripped apart a settee which was dumped outside a community building in the Creggan area. The independent councillor Gary Donnelly was speaking after an incident at the building In Cromore Gardens this morning, pictured above. "Young people who congregate at these community buildings have ripped apart a settee which was dumped in an adjacent green area. "Following a period of quiet the young people have started to congregate here again. "Life for some residents has become unbearable due to their behaviour. "Residents and community property has been vandalised. "I have spoke to the young people involved and to anyone who may have influence on these young people including community workers but to no avail. "I would appeal to them to catch their selves on and consider the effect their behaviour is having on the community particularly the elderly and disabled." He added: "I would also like to state that while young may have been responsible for this latest mess the responsibility also lies with the adults who have shown complete disregard to the area by fly tipping. "Council offers a wide range of free services to remove unwanted items and they are only a phone call away. There can be no excuse for this type of irresponsible behaviour.
