Sinn Féin Erne West Councillor Anthony Feely calls on farmers to be vigilant following a spate of robberies in the local area.

Speaking from his home in Garrison, Councillor Feely said:

"I am calling on farmers in the border area to be vigilant after a number of robberies in the vicinity recently.

"In neighbouring Leitrim three tractors, a quad and a log splitter have been stolen in recent weeks. The latest robbery took place in nearby Glenfarne.

"There are reports that a yellow transit van has been spotted acting suspiciously in the area.

"I would urge farmers to ensure machinery and equipment are properly secured and for anyone in the community who notices anything out of the ordinary to contact the Police on the 101 number." - Ends/Críoch
