Following last night’s attempt to kill police officers, serving the community in Strabane, James Brokenshire issued the below statement.

Secretary Of State Rt Hon James Brokenshire MP:

Those who planted this explosive device intended to kill or cause serious injury. Their actions put all of our community in harm’s way and their murderous intent is not reflective of wider society’s desire for peace.
