The Newry, Mourne and Down District Council has come up with a new strategy in order to coax bin collection staff back to the hotbed that is Newtownhamilton they have said.
From now on a group of riot squad police will accompany the refuse collection team after being attacked by ‘blood thirsty locals’.
One bin collector told Newry Spud:
“It’s terrible up there in Newtownhamilton. I’m going through PTSD after last week and the baying mob of locals attacking us.
Hopefully now with a guarded escort we will be able to bring some form of normality and civilisation to those savage folk.”
