The Samaritans have issued a message this morning urging Newry folks to contact them and not suffer in silence after the news that Ken’s Chinese on Canal Street has closed their doors for the last time after over 25 years in business.
It is thought there was a massive spike in call volume after the sad news filtered through the shocked district.
We spoke with one Ken’s enthusiast Natalie Morgan and she told us:
“I don’t know what to do at the moment, I’m numb. It took all that was in me to get out of bed this morning knowing that I will never taste Ken’s curry sauce again. I’m beyond devastated.”
Newry PSNI has called on people to stay calm while they go through withdrawal symptoms and to reach out to others in distress at this most difficult of times.
