Appeal after southern bus attacked in Enniskillen

APPEALS for information have been issued by the PSNI after a passenger window was smashed in a Bus Eireann bus on the Derrylin Road, Enniskillen.
The incident happened on Saturday 29 December around 7.50pm. A spokesman for the PSNI said, “Police in Enniskillen are appealing for information about a Bus Eireann bus being damaged while travelling on the Derrylin Road, Enniskillen at around 7.50pm on Saturday 29 December.
“A passenger window was broken after being struck by something thrown at it.”
Cllr Barry Doherty said he would hope that this was a one-off incident. “People at that sort of thing seriously need to catch themselves on. The service itself as we know is restricted from what it was last year.
“Bus Eireann like any company could just decide, well if things are getting thrown at our busses we’ll not bother stopping there.
“It’s a very anti-social activity to be engaged in. I would imagine it’s a one off thing from very irresponsible people. I can’t think of any reason why anyone would have a vendetta against a bus.” Anyone with information relating to the incident can contact the PSNI non-emergency number 101, or alternatively information can anonymously be given to Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555 111.
