Sinn Féin Councillor Liam Mackle has expressed concern at images appearing to show a woman with disabilities being physically removed from Lurgan Park by the PSNI.

Earlier this week Your Lurgan reported how the incident had been reported to the Police Ombudsman.

Cllr Liam Mackle said: “Images appearing to show a young woman with disabilities being physically removed from Lurgan Park by the PSNI are very concerning.

“Sinn Féin shares the concerns of the wider community about this incident.

“The Police Ombudsman should now investigate this incident to find out exactly what happened.

“It’s imperative that the PSNI always act in a way which protects the rights and dignity of all citizens.”
