Fermanagh security alert declared 'elaborate hoax'

A security alert in Irvinestown, in Co Fermanagh was the result of an elaborate hoax, police have said.

Police cordoned off part of Townhill Park for most of Monday.

The alert ended just after 4pm.

A PSNI spokesman said: "Police would like to thank those affected for their co-operation during this. They would ask anyone with information to contact 101 or if they wish to remain anonymous Crimestopppers on 0800 555 111."
