Hotspots

Two homes were attacked in Twaddell Avenue last night. There have been more incidents in the first 18 weeks of this year in that area than in all of last year. The most recent attack has been condemned by both SF and the DUP. Most interface violence is now described as ‘youth-led’. However, it is no comfort when you have your windows put in that it was a ‘youth’ rather than a ‘paramilitary’. While the investors visit it is essential to emphasise the positive but when talking amongst ourselves the continuing problem of low-level sectarian attacks needs to be acknowledged and addressed. The figures show little sign of abatement and hotspots of incidents eg Twaddell and Stoneyford seem to be developing. UPDATE A personal hotspot and a rural hotspot.
