PEOPLE in Ahoghill have been urged to contact police with any information about an act of arson in the village.

Alderman Stewart McDonald made the appeal after a car was torched on Thursday evening.

He said: “The burning out of a car in Brookfield Gardens Ahoghill last night is just the latest, albeit a very dramatic, example of increased anti-social behaviour in the area.

“The criminality which has increased of late is not welcome here and those involved represent a tiny minority in a village renowned for its community spirit.

“I would appeal for anyone with information about last night’s incident to come forward to the police and have a simple message from the community for all of those involved in criminal behaviour - this carry on will never be tolerated in our wee village.

The decent people of Ahoghill will work with the police to ensure it is stamped out.”
