Police Ask Public To Avoid Newcastle Area Due To Mountain Fire

Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service continue to deal with a major fire in the Mourne Mountains. This is expected to be ongoing for the rest of Saturday.

Police would ask that all members of the public avoid the Newcastle area, in particular Trassey Road, Bloody Bridge, Tollymore Forest Park and Donard Carpark to ensure NIFRS have full accessibility to these areas. We understand many people will have made plans to walk the Mournes today but we would ask that you reschedule as you will be turned away upon arrival.

Further updates will be issued in due course.

ENDS
