Ulster Unionist councillor Mark McKinty has called for action following a fatal traffic accident in Ballycarry.

Cllr McKinty said:“For a number of years, speeding in the village of Ballycarry has been a major concern to local residents. At meetings on the doorsteps, examples of fast cars through the village are generally the first points to be raised.

“I and other community representatives have tirelessly raised the problem. Disappointingly, it has either fallen on deaf ears or has not been taken seriously. Only a number of weeks ago, the village was the scene of a tragic accident. The time to act is now. No more talking. Action must be taken before anyone else is injured or killed.

“Police, TransportNI, and all other stakeholders must face their responsibilities. Again I say: the time to act is now.”
