Police issue warning to parents after photo emerges of children playing on roof of vacant supermarket

Police have issued a warning to parents across Northern Ireland after this picture was taken.

The picture, posted by the PSNI on its Craigavon Facebook page, shows children playing on the roof of a vacant Lidl store on Castle Lane in Lurgan.

An officer, posting on Facebook, said: "If you don't see the issue here, do a quick Google search. In fact you can copy & paste this for ease: Child dies after falling from roof.

"If you're happy with the idea of your child's skull hitting the concrete 10 meters below and haven't thought about the consequences thereafter, think about what an egg yoke does when you crack the shell.

"No amount of quick response from ourselves or our NIAS colleagues will fix that.

"If you recognise your kids in these pictures, it's time to talk to them, before it's only photos you have."
