Police are continuing to work at the scene at Drumragh Avenue following the discovery of a suspicious object. It is believed the object is designed to disrupt the Remembrance Sunday parade in the town.
“This is a disgusting move by people who represent nobody, intended to cause as much disruption as possible for those attending the parade,” said Mr Donnelly.
“Those behind this have no regard for the lives of others in the community – people are sick of this sort of behaviour and have voiced their opposition to it in the past. There can be absolutely no justification for it and I would appeal for it to stop.
“My thanks go to the police and security services for their work in keeping local residents safe. If anyone has any information on this incident, I urge them to contact police immediately.”
