The theft of warning signs from an accident blackspot has been described as “a new low”.

Two warning signs – and a ‘dead end’ sign – were taken from the Sugar Island Road junction, leading to Deans Road in Craigavon.

Local SDLP representative Thomas Larkham expressed his dismay at the theft.

“I cannot believe my eyes,” he said.

“This is a new low when warning signs which have just recently been installed by the Department of Infrastructure are stolen.

“This is a notoriously dangerous junction with a long history of bad accidents and these signs were installed to help with driver safety.

“Why anyone would want to do this is beyond me, it is both criminal and wrong.

“I have highlighted this to the Department and requested that these signs are replaced as a matter of urgently.

“I would urge anyone with information relating to this incident to pass it to the PSNI on 101.”
