POLICE IN NORTHERN Ireland have seized a rather unusual assortment of items.

The action, which was taken earlier on today in South Armagh, saw police conducting a search as part of an investigation into the illegal production and sale of bottled gas.

As well as 1,000 gas cylinders, police also seized a quantity of wine, computers and documentation, a curtain-sided lorry and a G-power forklift.

The stash was found at a premises on Coolderry Road, Newry and at Larkins Road, Crossmaglen.

Four people, a 23-year-old man, a 67-year-old woman, a 31-year-old female and a 31-year-old man have all been arrested for theft and possession of criminal property.

They are currently assisting police with their enquiries and the Health and Safety Executive has been notified.
