A SECURITY ALERT in the area of a police station in Craigavon in Co Armagh has ended as investigators are now examining a ‘pipe bomb type device’ found outside the station.

Army Technical Offficers (ATO) attended the scene at Brownlow PSNI in Legahory, Craigavon this morning after an alert was raised and the area was closed off.

The area around the police station has now reopened to motorists and pedestrians.

Detectives in Northern Ireland are also investigating a suspected mortar attack and a shot fired at a vehicle on the Glen Road at around 4am during the early hours of last Friday morning.

They are currently carrying out a number of searches in the area which means the Glen Road has been closed between Hannahstown Hill Road junction and Shaws Road junction.

Motorists are advised to expect delays in this area.
