SOME RESIDENTS of Reece Road, St Thomas, are not happy about the way they were treated by emergency personnel responding to the fire at the nearby B’s Recycling metal dump.
George and Evelyn Hurley were speaking to the media yesterday during a tour led by Member of Parliament Cynthia Forde. They said no one had come to speak to them and tell them anything.
