Alex Easton MLA has today described the cancellation of the firework display by the council as incompetence and an embarrassment.
Speaking today Alex Easton MLA said
“This can be only described a s a fiasco that could have been prevented, obviously someone should have had the sense to check the tides in advance so that plans could be in place to cover that eventuality, goodness knows the Council have been doing it for long enough to know! To top this off we then have the delay of over an hour before the Council decided to let the crowds know the event was cancelled. There needs to be a review of how the Seapark Fireworks event was handled this year and lessons need to be learnt, as a lot of very disappointed family’s came to watch and went home very disappointed”! This is not acceptable and should not have happened!”
