Police have issued a further 43 Covid notices, 14 prohibition notices and one Community Resolution Notice to people in the south Belfast area, following another night of disorder in the university area.

Speaking about the policing operation, Chief Inspector Gavin Kirkpatrick said, “Our joint approach, working alongside council officers and University representatives, to give advice and guidance before moving to issuing notices through to arrest if necessary will continue.

“We have consistently warned people of the risks and potential repercussions of not following the Health Protection Regulations, which not only puts themselves, their families and the local community at risk, but also risks impacting on their education and career opportunities.

“I am again making an appeal to parents and guardians who allow their young people to visit friends or attend parties in this residential area. You are not helping this situation. Please to speak to your young people, ensure you know where they are, who they are with and what they are doing.

“If you have moved to the Holyland area, you must also be good neighbours as the residents of this area who are fed up dealing with anti-social and criminal behaviour on their doorsteps. It is also critical that you follow the Health Protection Regulations to protect yourselves and others from Covid19.”
