Villiers condemns Londonderry device

Secretary of State voices her condemnation following the find of a viable device in Londonderry

Earlier this moring Ms Villiers said:

This device was intended to cause injury and sought to stop those people who want to secure a career in policing to serve their community and make NI a better place.

It is a potent reminder of the threat the police and public still face from terrorism.

The contemptible actions of those behind this incident are an affront to everyone who wants a peaceful and prosperous Northern Ireland.
