Hoax Bomb Call At Lisburn Primary Schools Condemned

The Alliance party has condemned those who made a hoax bomb call to a Lisburn primary school.

Pond Park Primary School was evacuated on Wednesday after a call was received warning that three devices had been left at the school. After carrying out a search, the police declared it a hoax.

Trevor Lunn MLA said: "I cannot begin to understand the mindset of somebody who would make a hoax bomb call at a primary school. I am appalled by the actions of whoever is responsible.

"This must have been a traumatic experience for the hundreds of children who had to be evacuated and their worried parents. I would however like to pay tribute to the staff and police who ensured the safety of the children during this evacuation."
