Cllr Billy Webb said: “I am extremely concerned following this mortar bomb find. The only purpose of this bombis to attempt to murder or injure.
“We must do all we can to help the police protect our community from the threat that the people behind this mortar bomb pose. I would like to pay tribute to the hard work of all police officers across Northern Ireland who are making our society safer.
“If anybody has any information about this find or any other device then they should contact the police.”
