Army bomb disposal officers have been called to the scene.

Army technical officers spent several hours at the scene with a low-key police presence at the security cordon.

A female police officer escaped injury after her vehicle caught fire when a booby trap bomb exploded in Northern Ireland.

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

Police said that it received a report that a vehicle caught fire at the junction of Ballyrobert Road early in the morning and that a bomb squad was at the scene.

According to local media, the fire was caused by the partial explosion of a booby trap bomb underneath the vehicle. "A booby trap bomb has exploded under a female police officer's auto".

"I understand that a terrorist attack on a police officer in Ballyrobert, Co Antrim has taken place", Paisley said.

However, the incident is no longer believed to be sinister in nature.

Her party colleague and North Antrim MP Ian Paisley said he understood the bomb exploded under the officer's auto. "Terrorism will never prevail".

"The main A2 remains closed at this time while the investigation into the circumstances of the incident continue".

'My concern is for the officer and her family'.

DUP leader Arlene Foster made mention of it condemning the attack during her press conference in Brussels after talks with Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier.
