Trevor Lunn MLA said: “I am outraged at this bomb attack. I am disgusted and appalled at the actions of a small group of people who wish to see violence like this return to our streets.
“This bomb could have injured or killed but those behind it do not care about the consequences of their actions.
“Derry being awarded the City of Culture is an opportunity to attract more tourists as well as investment. The people behind this bomb attack obviously do not want Derry or its economy to use this opportunity to move forward.
“If anybody has any information about this bomb then they must contact the police. Those responsible for this attack must be brought to justice by the courts.”
