MEA Mayor appeals for calm after unrest in Carrickfergus and Ballymena

Following a second night of unrest in Carrickfergus and Ballymena, the Mayor of Mid and East Antrim, Councillor Peter Johnston said:

“Whilst there is clearly a significant level of frustration across many communities at present, violence is never the answer and there is no place for it in our Borough. “Unrest of this nature is in no one’s interests and only serves to heighten tensions within local communities, rather than solve them. I am therefore appealing for calm and strongly urge people not to get drawn into disorder of any kind.”
