Young people have been lighting fires in a Craigavon alleyway close to trees and oil tanks.
Councillor Catherine Nelson said she has met with Council officers, PSNI, Fire Service, PCSP and DfI on site in Carrigart area.
“A group of young people have been lighting fires in an alleyway running down the backs of the houses,” the Sinn Fein councillor said.
“These fires are in trees close to oil tanks. There are a number of elderly residents in this area. The risks are serious.
“We are working on a way to secure the alleyway. In the meantime this same group are the source of ASB throughout Craigavon.
“We are therefore engaging the EA, PCSP and other agencies to work with them.
“In the meantime I would appeal to these young people to stop. I would also ask parents to outline the serious consequences of ASB.
“A criminal record will impact hugely on future opportunities.
“Thanks to all the agencies for their continued support and this partnership approach.”
