SDLP man condemns attack on home


An SDLP Assembly member has hit out today at those responsible for the latest security alert at his home in Derry.

British army bomb disposal experts were called to examine a suspect bomb outside the home of Pat Ramsey in the nationalist Bogside area of the city at around midnight.

About an hour later they declared the device a hoax, said the Police Service. Mr Ramsey has been the target of an lengthy and ongoing campaign of attacks both real and hoax on his home in Meenan Drive.

The Foyle MLA said it was clear the people responsible for the latest act of intimidation were the same "faceless thugs" who had attacked his home on countless occasions over recent years.
