A bomb discovered in an attic had been stored there following a failed bid to kill police in Co Armagh, the High Court has heard.

Prosecutors claimed a grouping styling itself the New IRA unsuccessfully deployed the improvised explosive device in the Craigavon area in August.

It was also alleged that a camera used to film wildlife was secreted at the home of a retired police officer.

Details were disclosed as bail was refused to one of four men accused of involvement in the plot. Ciaran Magee (24), from Lake Street in Lurgan, is charged with preparation of terrorist acts, namely targeting a former member of the security forces.
