The entire town of Warrenpoint has been sectioned under the mental health act it has been revealed.
The poor relation to Newry, Warrenpoint has always been a place looked upon with deep suspicion by Newry folk.
At an extraordinary meeting of the Council it was decided that the whole town would be held under the mental health act for at least two weeks in order to let specialist doctors into the area to inspect the native residents.
A Council Spokesman told Newry Spud:
“We’ve had to make the tough decision to section all of Warrenpoint. It’s a well-known fact that the Point is full of loony-bins and this was the only option open to us in order to protect the good and decent people of Newry from possible harm from these Warrenpoint savages.”
