Dervock pipe bomb 'could have maimed or killed'

A number of homes were evacuated on Friday following the discovery of a pipe bomb in Co Antrim.

The device was discovered in McArthur Avenue in Dervock.

North Antrim DUP MLA Mervyn Storey has condemned those responsible.

Mr Storey said: "Those responsible for this device have shown a complete disregard for the lives of everyone in the local community.

"At this time of year there are obviously many more children playing outside and this device could have maimed or killed anyone who came into contact with it.

"It is vital that those behind such activities are identified and brought to justice."
