The question is now being posed ” was the heavy masonry or coping stone which hit the female PSNI officer at Ardoyne in North Belfast dropped on her or was it dislodged due to water canon pressure?The putting of this question can in no way diminish the ugliness of what was witnessed in terms of rioting and attacks on the PSNI.
In the interest of accuracy however the record has to be set straight. UTV’s cameraman caught the sizeable slab of concrete motioning from the roof but a more forensic study is possibly necessary to clear this matter up.
Needless to say the sense of shock and pain visited upon the female officer will be diminished little by the search for truth.
