  • BREAKING: Booby trap BOMB sparks police car fire – Army called to scene

Army bomb disposal officers have been called to the scene.

According to the Police Service of Northern Ireland, the female driver of the vehicle escaped uninjured, as she was not in the auto at the moment of explosion.

A auto bomb partially exploded under the vehicle of a female police officer in Northern Ireland this morning, according to reports.

The former female officer escaped without injury as she was not in the auto, believed to be her personal vehicle, at the time.

DUP MP Ian Paisley told the Belfast Telegraph a suspected auto bomb had been placed under the vehicle.

Shortly before 8.30am a report was made that it had caught fire at the junction of Ballyrobert Road.

"A booby trap bomb has exploded under a female police officer's auto".

It is believed the driver of the auto was a former PSNI officer.

'Thankfully she wasn't in it at the time the vehicle went on fire. My concern is for the officer and family of officer. "Terrorism will never prevail".

Mr Paisley rowed back saying it was instead a "major malfunction" of the vehicle and not terrorist related.

"We've just received news from Northern Ireland which is very disturbing", she said.

The road remained closed for a number of hours while investigations were carried out.

"If so that's a huge relief and I hope those involved are uninjured", he tweeted.
