18 June, 2015 - by Raymond McCartney

Sinn Féin MLA Raymond McCartney has condemned those responsible for planting a bomb under the home of a PSNI officer in Eglinton this morning. 

Mr McCartney said; 

"This attempted bomb attack in Glenrandel in Eglinton was wrong and must be condemned. 

"Thankfully no one was injured in this attack but we could have been facing serious injuries or worse. 

"Local residents, many of them older people, had to be moved out of their homes as a result of this incident and had to spend the night elsewhere. 

"This is a city moving forward and the vast majority of people do not want these type of attacks and do not support them. 

"Those responsible are not representative of the people of Derry and won't be allowed to drag us back to the past. 

"It is time the listened to the will of the people and call and end to these futile activities."
