Arms found on Isle of Wight may have links to the 'Troubles'

The UK’s South East Counter Terrorism Unit is liaising with the PSNI about the discovery.

TWO FIREARMS, AMMUNITION and what are believed to be two improvised incendiary devices found on the Isle of Wight may have links to The Troubles in Northern Ireland, say police.

Detectives from the PSNI have been assisting the UK’s South East Counter Terrorism Unit in relation to the discovery of the items on 24 August.

It is understood from initial tests that the weapons had been at the location for several years. Police said it is an “essential part” of the investigation to ascertain exactly how long the items have been there.
