Rachel Woods MLA has commented on a pipe bomb attack on a house in the Killaire Wood Lane area of Bangor in the early hours of Monday morning (13 January).
Rachel, MLA for North Down, said: “Throwing an explosive device at a house is a totally reckless act. Rachel, MLA for North Down, said:
“Killaire Wood is a residential area with many people bringing up children and leading busy lives there.
“This pipe bomb could have caused significant damage to any one of the houses in the vicinity.
“Worse still, it could have caused serious injury to anyone leaving their home to head out to work, or coming home from work or a night out.
“Families were moved out of their houses last night during the security operation. It’s entirely unacceptable that people had to experience this level of disruption and concern because of the recklessness of others.
“I’d encourage anyone with any information on the incident to contact PSNI on the non-emergency number 101.
“Or, they can contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
