Northern Ireland Office
Mr Brokenshire commented:
The PSNI and bomb disposal team are to be congratulated for their excellent work in identifying and disarming these explosives. Their professionalism during this important operation has helped keep the community safe.
Those responsible for hiding these explosives want to drag Northern Ireland backwards. They will not succeed. This is a reminder of the continuing need for vigilance and to report any information no matter how small to the PSNI.
