SDLP MLA for Upper Bann Dolores Kelly has expressed her disgust over the recent republican dissident attack in the Kilwilkie estate.

She said: “This device was designed to kill police. It was disguised in a dog bin and timed to go off as police were monitoring the un-notified republican parade in the area.

“This explosion sent shrapnel flying and it would have seriously injured any police officers or bystanders standing close by.

“I urge anyone with information to come forward to the police. There must be no hiding place for those who have nothing to offer except violence and destruction.”
