West Belfast: Suspect device is found in public park

By Claire Williamson

A suspected pipe bomb found at a public park in west Belfast has been branded "despicable".

Police attended the security alert at Colin Glen Forest Park on Friday night.

Army bomb experts were tasked to the scene where it's understood a pipe bomb was found which had been discarded in the area for some time. SDLP Councillor Brian Heading said: "To leave material like that in an area which is used by children and families is despicable. It is about time that those who are involved in any campaign realise that people don't want this and want to have a normal life."
