Vandals dice with death thumbnailVandals ransacked the Ballykeel wastewater station office.

VANDALS who broke into a Ballymena wastewater treatment station could have killed themselves, NI Water warned last night (Monday).
The company said recent vandalism acts at Devenagh Burn Wastewater Pumping Station could cause serious harm or even potentially death to those who are committing the crimes.
Peter Ferguson from NI Water, warned: "This wastewater pumping station in Ballykeel, serves homes in this area and pumps sewage from here to Ballymena Wastewater Treatment Works for treatment.
“Those who broke into the site compound not only broke and cut the front entrance but also used a piece of reinforcement to force open the sliding shutter into site office containers, broke windows of the site office, damaged a security light and stole a time-lapse camera.
“The most serious part of this incident is the danger posed to those who entered the site.
“If someone had fallen into the excavation for a new underground tank, this could have caused serious injury or potential death to those involved."
