Statement by TUV Alderman Sharon McKillop:
“I unreservedly condemn last night’s pipe bomb attacks in Bushmills. Children and elderly people live in close proximity to the location of both bombs and it is extremely fortunate that we are not talking about serious injuries or worse this morning. I gather that there was real concern for one resident who could not be account for for some time and another elderly resident who recently suffered a bereavement obviously didn’t need this.
“I know a lot of the people in this area personally and they are the salt of the earth. They don’t want to see this sort of behaviour in their area.
“I would appeal for anyone with information to come forward to the police. There is an onus on the PSNI to get to the root of the problem which caused last night’s criminality. We don’t want this in Bushmills and need to see all those who break the law brought to justice.”
