Louise Haigh comments on attempted murder of a police officer in Northern Ireland

Louise Haigh MP, Labour’s Shadow Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, commenting on the attempted murder of a police officer near Dungiven in Northern Ireland, said:

“This attempted murder of a serving police officer is utterly sickening.

“All my thoughts are with the officer affected and her family.

“Those who want to drag Northern Ireland back to the past have no support, and this reprehensible act has no place in today’s Northern Ireland.

“Communities want to live in peace, free from fear and violence. That is the only way forward.”
