Up to 100 freshly-bedded kerbstones were ripped up in a mindless act of vandalism on the outskirts of Richhill last night (Friday).
Contractors had laid the stonework ahead of resurfacing the Sandymount Road.
William Irwin MLA hit out at the “idiots” involved.
“Such mindless vandalism,” he exclaimed. “It is so good to see the new resurfacing on the Sandymount Road close to Richhill and the contractors had laid dozens of kerbstones ahead of finalising the road edges for surfacing.
“Some time last night some idiots thought it would be fun to topple over 100 of the freshly bedded kerb stones.How ridiculous!”
He added: “This will be a set back for the contractors as the kerbs all have to be re bedded and the concrete has set hard.
“If anyone witnessed any suspicious activity in the vicinity of junction of the Sandymount Road and the main Armagh/Portadown Road they should contact the PSNI immediately.”
