Covering a bomb scare in Newry, Good Morning Ulster’s Conor MacAuley reported what he found at the scene:
There are road closed signs up, there are cones, some signs and lights, but I can’t see any police presence at the moment”
“I have seen dozens of cars driving past this morning, some of them with small children in the back of their cars doing the school run.
People obviously don’t realise the potential danger they are in
[added emphasis above]
While the PSNI have criticised motorists it remains unclear if they have taken any further steps to ensure public safety.
