The railway line between Lisburn and Portadown has re-opened following a security alert last night.
It was closed after van was hijacked and set alight in the Bells Row area of Lurgan just before 7.30pm.
Local MLA Carla Lockhart said:
"These people are not representative. They are holding our town to ransom."
"Lurgan is a great place to live, work and do business and the message is clear terrorism didn’t succeed in days gone by, it won’t succeed now or in the future. "
"I encourage anyone with any information to report it to the PSNI. We need political condemnation from all parties and community support to send a clear message to those involved that their actions are not wanted within the area.”
Once again the town of Lurgan being held to ransom. A car has been hijacked and set alight. When are these despicable individuals going to realise the community don’t want this. We need political and community support to stop this. Any information please pass to the @PSNIABC https://t.co/wOOO1rR4Fi— Carla Lockhart (@carlalockhart) 8 March 2019
