Sergeant Paul McLernon said: “I hope that these arrangements do not affect your property unduly.

“However, I would ask that careful consideration is given to travel arrangements to and from your property within the affected times.

“We understand the inconvenience that this causes to residents and we will of course make every effort to open the roads as quickly as possible once it is safe to do so.”
