Durkan condemns petrol bomb attacks on Fountain estate

Derry’s MP Mark Durkan has condemned those responsible for throwing petrol bombs into the Fountain estate in Derry for the third time this week.

Mr Durkan said: “Those responsible are out to cause damage and their contemptible actions only show they have an utter disregard for the many people who live nearby.

“Indeed, it is a disgrace that elderly people – particularly in Alexander House – are being put through such distress and disruption.

“No-one, especially elderly citizens, should be subjected to such anxiety and strain.”
