Newcastle police station only seems to be open on a part-time basis. Only stays open to about 8 pm which is utterly stupid. Newcastle has become dodgier over the last few years but police cut backs mean the station doesn't even stay open all the time. Why they didn't go to downpatrick is anyone's guess unless its exactly the same.

Why was she taken to Bangor police station from Newcastle?? I'm sure there's a closer police station than that.
