‘Viable device’ at councillor’s home (UTV)
The army bomb squad have made safe a ‘viable device’ which was left outside the home of an Ulster Unionist councillor in Co Fermanagh.
It was discovered earlier on Monday in the Roasslea area after a telephone bomb warning at midnight on Sunday, which claimed a house had been attacked.
A device was found by the son of UUP councillor Harold Andrews the end of the lane outside their house.
It sparked a security alert which lasted throughout the day with roads closed in the Mullaghglass area and diversions put in place.
Police said it ended with the discovery of a ‘viable’ device, which has now been taken away for further investigations.
Councillor Andrews described what they had found.
“It’s a metal cylinder, it’s about eight or nine inches long and there’s wire protruding out of the top of it,” he said,
“You would hardly notice it in the long grass.”
Fermanagh South Tyrone MLA Tom Elliott said the attack was carried out by “a small intolerant element of people who still wish to intimidate Protestants out of Rosslea”.
“Harold is an excellent councillor who is working hard for the community,” he said.
“Such an attack on Harold and his family is despicable.”
Police have asked anyone with information on the incident to come forward.
