Two Arrested On Suspicion Of Attempted Murder After Man Stabbed At Thorpe Park


Local Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) Councillor, Clement Cuthbertson, said the video was 'totally wrong' and those responsible should be held to account.

Speaking to the Belfast Telegraph yesterday (Thursday), he said: "The video circulating on social media is shocking. It's reckless to see it not only on a local road, but on a motorway. It is totally wrong.

"Hopefully someone can identify those involved and report it to the PSNI. You have to be 17 to get your provisional licence, and that child is definitely not 17.

"We've had a lot of accidents on that road recently and many that have led to deaths. People want to see the roads safe but the behaviour in the video is reckless and careless."
