It is very fortunate that this device was detected before it exploded and that no-one was killed or seriously injured.
Initial investigations would indicate that this was a viable device placed below an officer's car sometime in the last 48 hours. It was clearly intended to kill the police officer. His family and neighbours in the vicinity were also put at risk of serious harm.
Obviously there are people out there who are still intent on causing murder and mayhem.
