Statement by Jim Allister MLA, TUV North Antrim:
“I was saddened to learn of the death of Mr Michael Munro, an American tourist, yesterday evening as a result of traffic collision on the Gracehill Road in Armoy. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family circle and friends at this time.
“This section of road has long been identified by residents of the area as an accident hotspot due to the tourist draw of the Dark Hedges which has brought a significant number of people and vehicles to this rural road. To that end I have written to the PSNI and DfI Roads to press for action to improve safety, particularly at the junctions.”
