Stewart Dickson MLA said: “This attack has served no purpose except to divert vital Police resources away from serving the community. There can be no justification for attacking the Police in this manner. This incident must be condemned by all sides.
“The people who carried out this attack are just a bunch of thugs who are adding nothing to our society.
“The PSNI have my full support. They are doing an outstanding job and regularly put their lives at risk to protect the public.
“If anybody has any information about this attack then I would urge them to contact the Police.”
