Newtowncunningham council depot broken into overnight

The Donegal County Council depot at Newtowncunningham has been broken into, with damage caused to the inside of the compound and a quantity of equipment taken.

Local Cllr Paul Canning says the break-in was discovered at around 8 o'clock this morning, and an inventory is being taken to determine what has been stolen.

In the meantime, he says, this further underlines his claim that there are not enough gardai on patrol in the area, and inadequate resources to respond to incidents when they happen.

Despite Garda Assurances to the contratry, Cllr Canning believes the new garda rostering system is not working. He's been speaking about the latest incident in Newtowncunningham..........
