It is completely unacceptable that officers who were carrying out their professional duty on behalf of the community should be subjected to a potentially murderous attack.
This was a planned attempt to kill a Police Officer which also put the lives of the public in danger and it is fortunate there were no injuries as a result of this attack.
I am urgently appealing to those involved in ongoing protests to listen to their political leaders and step back from protest activity before someone is seriously injured or killed.
