LCDI ‘disheartened’ at vehicle fires thumbnailOne of the LCDI community vehicles which was the target of an arson attack.

THE General Manager of LCDI has vowed that community services will continue as normal despite an arson attack on two of its vehicles last week. Police confirmed at the weekend that the fires, which occurred on August 23, were started deliberately and they are now seeking the public's assistance in the matter.
Joanne Kinnear, General Manager at LCDI, said: "As a not for profit community organisation, we were very disheartened when we got the call on Wednesday night that some of our vehicles had been set on fire.
“Each of the vehicles we have are used daily to provide community led and managed services whilst also providing permanent full time employment for local people in Limavady.
“So for all of this to be potentially jeopardised and the limited resources of the emergency services to be taken up because of reckless, senseless criminal behaviour is very disappointing.
“Despite this set back, the Management Board of LCDI remain committed to providing local sustainable employment and community focused services in Limavady.
