Bushmills hit by two pipe bomb blasts

Two pipe bombs have exploded at houses in Bushmills.

One went off at Ballaghmore Court and another at Woodland Court, causing damage but no injuries.

The attacks happened at around 1am on Friday.

DUP Assembly member Mervyn Storey said: "It is extremely sad that we have people in our society who still believe that they have a right to carry out such attacks.

"Thankfully nobody on this occasion was injured in these attacks, however we should be under no illusion, it is only a matter of time until someone will be seriously injured or worse unless these attacks are dealt with rigorously and condemned by all sections of the community.

"I would appeal for an end to this terrorising of Bushmills. It does nothing for its reputation and for the people who live there."

Police appealed for anybody with information to contact them.
