"Bagenalstown is locked in by bridges," said Cllr Arthur McDonald as he hit out over safety concerns for people walking on them. 

He was speaking at a recent meeting of Bagenalstown Municipal District when he raised the issue of bridge safety. 

Cllr McDonald has previously described Kilcarrig Bridge as "deadly" after he witnessed an 82-year-old woman being pinned in by a lorry.

He has repeated his calls for safety measures to be installed on the narrow bridge where "every two minutes there are lorries passing". 

He added: "Kilree Bridge is not great either. We're locked in by bridges and nothing is being done with them."
