Today, a group of young people from the Lower Shankill released a damning report (5th August 2009) and YouTube video, highlighting the dangers that broken glass poses to young people who wish to play in the available open spaces. The report calls on Belfast City Council and NI Housing Executive to address the broken glass as a matter of urgency and implement a weekly cleaning system. Through correspondence with DSD, Northern Ireland Housing Executive and Belfast City Council, repeated assurances were given that the broken glass would be cleaned up. However, evidence monitored by the group shows that little has been done and the issue remains unaddressed.
