Derry Trades Union Council (DTUC) condemned the bomb attack stating: "This had the potential to cause major loss of life and the only purpose served is to cause damage and disruption to people in the vicinity.

"It is a matter of concern that whoever planted this have the capacity to put a car bomb in a public place. This is a throw back to a violent campaign which the majority of Irish people North and South have rejected."
