David Ford said: “I unreservedly condemn the appalling attack on police officers in Belfast this evening.

This was clearly an attempt to kill police officers serving the community. Those responsible for this cowardly act have also shown absolutely no regard for local residents. I am very thankful that no one was injured.

“I would urge anyone with information to pass it to the PSNI on the 101 number or to the Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111. The sooner these criminals face justice the safer our community will be.”
