Bradley: time for dissidents to ‘wrap up their tent’

Dennis Bradley, vice Chair of the Policing Board and a victim of a brutal beating in a bar in Derry last month, has called on dissident republicans still on a ‘war footing’, to pack it in and ‘go away’. He has said that he will continue to visit the Brandywell area of the city saying, “I have no intention of staying away from the Brandywell. If other people have a difficulty with that, come and tell me. But don`t get a 16-year-old to use a baseball bat to hit me or anyone else.”
