Alliance Chief Whip Kieran McCarthy MLA has expressed shock and disgust at a bomb attack on a police officer in Spamount, Co. Tyrone last night.

Kieran McCarthy MLA stated: "This was a disgusting attack. Such incidents will only act to strengthen the resolve of local people to rid this society of terrorism.

"Progress will not be derailed by a few thugs who have no backing in the wider community.

"I want to send my best wishes to the police officer injured in the attack and I hope he has a quick recovery. This must have a deeply traumatic attack and I hope that the authorities can catch these thugs and help free our society from the last vestiges of paramilitarism."
