Kelly condemns viable pipe bomb in Crumlin

Alliance Councillor Neil Kelly has said a viable pipe bomb discovered in Crumlin on Saturday could have killed.

The discovery of the incident caused widespread disruption, with nearby shops and 15 homes being evacuated.

Councillor Neil Kelly said: “Those behind this viable pipe bomb clearly have no regards for the lives of others in the community.

“This was a busy Saturday afternoon when many people shopping in the centre of Crumlin. If this device had gone undetected we could have been left with a much more serious situation.

“This is despicable act has no place in our community and I would urge anyone with information to contact the PSNI as soon as possible.”
