Labour's Shadow Secretary of State for Northern Ireland has taken to Twitter to condemn those who planted a bomb under the car of a police officer in Belfast:
Utterly reprehensible attempt to murder a police officer today. An attack on the police is an attack on the entire community they serve.
My thoughts with the officer, his family & colleagues. Stark contrast between bravery of PSNI & actions of those who seek to destroy peace.
