Dickson condemns those behind Derry mortar bomb

Alliance Justice spokesperson Stewart Dickson MLA has condemned those responsible for a mortar bomb that was found near Strand Road Police station in Derry. Around 1,000 people were evacuated from their homes over night. The device was made safe by army technical officers.

Stewart Dickson MLA said: “Those responsible for this mortar bomb have no regards for the lives of others. Anybody could have been seriously injured or killed had it exploded.

“I would like to pay tribute to the police and army officers who put their lives at risk to protect the public during this security alert. Their bravery stands in stark contrast to the evil actions of those responsible for this mortar bomb.

“If anybody has any information about this device then I would urge them to contact the police.”
