The bomb was spotted attached to the underside of the car on Saturday, June 1.

On Thursday night the PSNI said: “A 38-year-old man has been charged with attempted murder, making explosives with intent to endanger life or cause serious injury to property and possessing explosives with intent to endanger life or cause serious injury to property.”

He is due to appear at Belfast Magistrates Court on Friday, September 13.
