Webb appalled at petrol bomb incident in Newtownabbey

Mayor of Newtownabbey Cllr Billy Webb has condemned an incident in which a petrol bomb was thrown at a police car in Newtownabbey. Two police officers were in the car at the time and the incident took place in the Church Road area at around 1.30am this morning.

Cllr Billy Webb said: “This was an absolutely appalling incident. My thoughts are with the two police officers who were in the car when this happened.

“I am sickened that someone could do something like this. The police should be able to go about their important everyday work without having to face incidents like this.

“The community is very shocked at this reckless and dangerous act and I would call on anyone who has any information on this to contact police immediately.”
