Sinn Féin Councillor Dermot Nicholl has said that those people who stoned buses at Greysteel returning from the Twelfth offer nothing to building understanding between the two communities.

Councillor Nicholl said: “The stoning of buses returning from the Twelfth demonstrations was wrong and could have caused severe injury or worse especially as children were aboard the bus.

“The people involved in this sectarian attack have nothing to offer society as we attempt to build respect and understanding between the different communities.

“if we are to build understanding political leaders from all sides need to show leadership when faced with acts of sectarianism and hatred.”
