Alex Easton MLA has condemned those involved in an elaborate bomb hoax at a Holywood Nursery School and described them as brainless idiots.

Speaking today Alex Easton MLA said:

“I totally condemn those involved in the planting of a malicious hoax bomb outside a Holywood Nursery School and Abbeyfield House sheltered accommodation. These actions are those of brainless idiots who have no thought or compassion for those that they have affected.”

“These reckless actions have seen a nursery school, a sheltered accommodation, homes and businesses affected and that is totally unacceptable. I would praise the efforts of the PSNI and Army Bomb disposal unit and would call for anyone with any information to bring it to the PSNI so that those responsible can be charged and brought before the courts.”
