Trevor Lunn MLA said: “People are sick of the type of individuals who are involved in this thuggery. They need to be taken off our streets, and anyone who can help police to catch those involved should contact them immediately. A petrol bomb is a lethal weapon, just as much as an explosive device, with the same capacity to cause death. Is that really what the perpetrators want, to kill children?
“Those who use fear and intimidation must never get their own way. People in Lisburn will be shocked and angry about this incident. They just want to get on with their everyday lives without having thugs causing trouble in their area.”
