Anna Lo MLA said: “There can be no justification for the reckless and mindless actions of those responsible for this bomb. We are very lucky that nobody was injured or killed.
“There is no place in our society for this type of violence. The public are opposed to the actions of those behind the recent bomb attacks and security alerts.
“This incident has again shown the dangers that the police and army technical officers face in order to protect the public. I would like to pay tribute to their courage and bravery.
“If anybody has any information about this bomb then I would urge them to contact the police so those responsible can be brought to justice.”
