The Department for Infrastructure has said it plans on taking all abled bodied children from the ages of 6 to 18 to work on fixing the potholes in the area.
The move will see all kids being removed from their homes and placed in a chain gang type working environment and worked from 8am to 7pm with a 20 minute lunch break.
The Mister responsible for the initiative SDLP’s Nichola Mallon told us:
“With the school system grounded to a halt we believe that giving the kids of Newry and further afield work experience on the roads will be both beneficial for their health and will certainly be character building. All parents in Newry are asked to leave their children off in the Mall area tomorrow from 6am.”
