Helicopter activity causes concern


The constant drone of a helicopter became the focus of social media debate on Sunday and Monday as police stepped up patrols across Lurgan.

Some residents had voiced concerns the chopper was flying ‘very low’ over parts of Lurgan while others were upset at the constant noise from the helicopter.

Police said they were taking part in operational policing at the time.

In response to a query from the ‘MAIL’ a PSNI spokesperson said: “Police were in the Shankill and Drumbeg estates in Lurgan as part of routine operational policing on the evening of Monday 13 July and Sunday 14 July.”
