Anna Lo MLA said: “I am absolutely disgusted by those who would leave a bomb where people could have been injured or killed.
“I cannot comprehend the mindset of those responsible for this bomb. How can anyone believe that violence is ever the answer? It was never right during the Troubles and it is still not right.
“Many of the businesses in the area have faced a hard couple of years since the economic downturn and the last thing the need is for their trade to be disrupted by incidents such as this.
“If anybody has any information about this bomb then they must contact the police. The people responsible must be taken off the streets by the authorities.”
