Burning Of Cars In Derry 'Contemptible'

SDLP Derry City Cllr John Boyle has condemned those responsible for burning out two cars in the Springtown Road area of the city last night.

Cllr Boyle said the destructive act was utterly contemptible.

"It will have caused great distress and inconvenience to the owners of these vehicles and our thoughts are with them at this time.

"It is extremely fortunate that no one has been injured as a result of these cars being set ablaze in this busy area.

"I appeal to anyone with information on this incident to contact the police immediately."
