Hussey condems security alert at Primary School in Omagh
11 December 2014
West Tyrone Ulster Unionist MLA Ross Hussey has condemed those behind today's security alert at an Omagh Primary School.
Mr Hussey said:
"I Simply cannot comprehend the mentality of anyone who would cause a security alert at a Primary School, but that is excatly what has happened today at Omagh County Primary School."
"Who in their right mind would want to disrupt the lives of young children and cause them to be evacuated from their school in the depths of winter?
"In addition to the fear and confusion of the children, parents will also have been concerned and traffic chaos was created in the Campsie Road area.
"The entire community will be disgusted at this incident. Omagh has suffered more than enough and whoever is behind this incident should be utterly ashamed of themselves.
"I know that the people of this town and the rest of West Tyrone just want to live their lives and bring up their families in peace and safety. If anyone can assist the Police in catching whoever was responsible for this security alert I would appeal to them to come forward immediately."

Time for a change
I was first elected to Omagh District Council in May 2005 and in that seven year period I was closely involved with community groups in the town. We have seen very positive steps forward, specifically, with the redevelopment of the Hospital Road community centre, the revamp of the King George's Field area of Campsie, the new cycle paths and enhanced footways in Festival Park and the traffic calming scheme on the Kevlin Road to name but a few. Working with local communities we see an enhanced local spirit and my colleagues and I will endeavour to continue to support these initiatives.
Time for another change
One of the campaigns that has stuck with me since I became an active politician has been the local hospital campaign. I have attended rallies and protests in Omagh, Enniskillen, Londonderry, Limavady, Belfast, even going to the constituency of the former Secretary of State, Shaun Woodward MP, in St Helens in England. I will continue to campaign in support of the Tyrone County Hospital and its staff.
