Dickson Receives Assurances from NIE
East Antrim MLA, Stewart Dickson, has received assurances from NIE that the cable that fell down near Westmount Avenue, Windmill, Carrickfergus, is safely back up and is there to stay.
The cable last came down in April 2010 due to heavy snowfall caused by the bad winter of that year, and although was quickly repaired by NIE it recently came down again.
Mr Dickson said: “Having spoken to NIE they confirmed that the cable came down this time due to ‘wear and tear’. They have assured me that it is now been reinstated more securely and should remain there until it is eventually replaced when it reaches the end of its useful life.”
