Trevor Lunn MLA said: “Anybody could have seriously injured or killed by this device. Those responsible do not care who is harmed by their actions. They just want to see a return to the dark days of the Troubles.
“My thoughts go out to the victim. I hope he will be able to make a recovery from the injuries he sustained. No one deserves to be subjected to such a barbaric attack.
“Those responsible must face justice in the courts, so I would urge anybody with any information that could help the Police in their investigation to get in touch with the PSNI or Crimestoppers.”
