Travellers support group closes

Travellers in Londonderry say the closure of a support group in Ballyarnet has left them without vital services.

It is understood the Travellers Support Group has closed due to funding problems.

A meeting is expected to take place between funders and the group next month.

Martin Stokes said the closure leaves his community without a voice.

"This establishment was very helpful to the travelling community," he said.

"Any voice we had was this centre, they would have come and discussed things with us and told us what the next step was."
