Police urging caution after “extremely vague” bomb warning

Police in the Strabane and Derry areas have called for public vigilance following a telephoned bomb warning.

At around 10.30am this morning a call was made warning “there’s a bomb at the Brae”.

Police have checked locations known to them that match the name given, but nothing has been found.

They says due to the vagueness of the warning, police are now advising people living close to locations with similar names to be watchful and to report anything suspicious.

Meanwhile, Police are searching a farm in County Tyrone after a former police officer found an object under his tractor

It was discovered on a farm at Sixmilecross, examined and initially deemed not to be an explosive device.

However, a magnet was then found underneath the tractor and the investigation is continuing.
