Alliance Oldpark representative James McClure has condemned the attack on Police in the Oldpark road area on Saturday night at around 10pm. No police Officers were injured and the device was later discovered to be a hoax.
James said: “It is deeply troubling that people are still planning and executing attacks on the PSNI. This situation could have been a whole lot worse; however, it must still have been very difficult for the Officers involved. Individuals who offer nothing positive to our City have again disrupted people in Oldpark.
“I would appeal to anyone who has information about this attack to contact the PSNI or Crimestoppers. It is also important to improve Community Relations across Northern Ireland so these attacks do not occur in the future and I will be working with other Alliance representatives across North Belfast to bring Communities together.”
