Package found at Northern Ireland airport not an explosive device

Bomb disposal officers who removed a suspect device from an airport in Northern Ireland have confirmed the suspicious package was not an explosive device.

They said bomb experts examined the package before calling off the alert.

The item was found at St Angelo - a small airport outside Enniskillen in Co Fermanagh.

Police said it was taken away by Army Technical Officers for further examination.

The security alert, which has ended, saw the main Enniskillen to Kesh road closed through the evening.

The airport, which is close to a number of residential houses and a busy sawmill business, is mainly used by recreational fliers and private jets.
