UKIP North Down Councillor John Montgomery has today expressed his sadness at the wanton destruction in Main Street, where a large number of businesses had their property damaged.
Commenting, Cllr Montgomery said:
” At a time when many local businesses continue to struggle day on day, the very last thing they need is this sort of mindless attack being thrust upon them. Aside from the obvious disruption to their day to day trade whilst having this damage repaired, there may be additional costs through any insurance claim.”
Commenting further, Cllr Montgomery said:
“Locally, our businesses need all the support that they can get. To that end, I would urge anyone with any information to please get in touch with the Police.”
“People, however are asking the question; where were the Police while this sustained attack was happening; did they not hear anything? Indeed, whilst security cameras are helpful, it is feet on the ground that will deter this sort of activity.”
