Ward councillor for Addiscombe West, Sean Fitzsimons, said he visited the road this morning but was unable to speak to concerned residents as police were investigating at the time.

He said: “As a local resident I am shocked at the loss of another life on Alpha Road and extend my condolences to the families and loved ones affected.

“Addiscombe West local councillors have urged the police and the council to take steps to re-assure local residents about community safety, many of whom are fearful that further incidents may happen on their doorsteps.”
