There has been condemnation of anti-social behaviour in Tempo over the Bank Holiday weekend.

Police received reports of an incident at around 1.45am on the village’s Main Street on Monday, August 30, during which a blue wheelie bin was set alight.

DUP Erne North Councillor Deborah Erskine has condemned those responsible for a spate of anti-social behaviour in Tempo.

“I’m calling time on anti-social behaviour taking place in Tempo. The destructive antics on display over the weekend were deplorable,” said Councillor Erskine.

“Villagers have had enough. How can anyone say setting a bin on fire in the village is acceptable? This has also been coupled with noise complaints.

“Tempo is a great place with good community relations, but a small minority are intent on wrecking the peaceful nature of this small village.

“I have had villagers and those driving in the area at the time get in touch with me. This incident was frightening and went well beyond people just out for the night and having fun.

“When you choose to destroy property and terrorise villagers, it’s not acceptable.”

Councillor Erskine said she will be liaising with the police to try and ensure incidents like this do not happen again, adding: “Going out for the night to enjoy yourself does not need to end in this type of reckless behaviour.”

Police in Fermanagh are asking for anyone who was in the area at the time, or who was driving through the Main Street and may have dashcam footage of the incident, to assist them in their investigations by contacting 101, quoting serial number 148 of 30/8/21.
