“The viable device was located in the Tullyview area on Sunday 16 January, and was subsequently made safe by Ammunition Technical Officers.

“This was a reckless and cowardly act, with potentially devastating consequences. It has no place whatsoever in today’s society and is certainly not supported by the local community.”
