Campbell shocked at attack on police officer

Alliance Newtownabbey Councillor Tom Campbell has expressed his shock at the attack on a police officer on Tuesday night in the Grange estate in Ballyclare. The officer received head injuries after the vehicle he was in was attacked by a group of masked men with petrol bombs. He was treated in hospital but later discharged.

Cllr Tom Campbell said: “I was shocked that a police officer who is there to protect our community was attacked in such a brutal manner.

“This attack has achieved nothing except to waste valuable police resources. The police should be able to patrol our streets without fear of being attacked in this manner.

“I hope that this officer is able to make a swift recovery from his injuries and that this attack will not deter him from serving our community.

“If anybody has any information about this attack then I would urge them to contact the police. I hope the courts will make an example of those who carry out attacks such as this.”
