COMMUNITY representatives in Monkstown have appealed for parents to take responsibility for their children and help put an end to anti-social behaviour problems in the estate.

The plea follows an incident in the Jordanstown Road area last Tuesday afternoon (July 19) when youths pelted a Metro bus with stones, smashing a side window.

A number of passengers, including several pensioners, were on board at the time of the attack, but no-one sustained any injuries.
