Following the discovery of a viable explosive device left at the home of a female police officer near Dungiven, East Londonderry DUP MLA George Robinson MLA said,

"In recent weeks the entire Limavady DUP team met with senior Police on two occasions to highlight our concerns that dissident Republicans were trying to exert their influence and recruit in the wider Roe Valley area.

Indeed, we highlighted a fear that given how dissidents were being heavily monitored in the City of Londonderry, they would attempt to extend their violent activities to this area and members of the Police and security force family would be their targets.

Today's events has reinforced our fears and turned them into reality. Our thoughts are with this officer and her family and we make a plea for anyone who has any scrap of evidence that they come forward to ensure that the perpetrators behind this latest action are caught and dealt with."
