Sinn Féin Education Spokesperson Karen Mullan MLA has called on the owners of old Foyle College building on the Northland Road to 'ensure the correct security measures are put in place for the site' after the building was destroyed by a massive fire. “Last night the old Foyle College building on the Northland Road was destroyed by a massive fire, this was after the building had been vandalised all week," she said. “After the events of last weekend I made representation to the school and requested a meeting with school officials immediately before something more sinister would happen. The school were unable to meet with myself or Sinn Féin until after the weekend. “Until these sites are transferred over to the Education Authority they are the responsibility of Foyle College. "They must ensure the correct security measures are put in place for the site. “I will be meeting with officials from the school early next week to raise further concerns. “I would like to issue an urgent plea for everyone to stay off the grounds of the site as there is a serious health and safety risk."
