Homes evacuated in Co Armagh bomb hoax

A security alert in Tandragee has been declared an elaborate hoax.

Bomb disposal experts were tasked to a suspicious device in Laurelvale Road on Thursday afternoon.

The road was closed between its junctions with Mullavilly Road and Tannaghmore Road while traffic was diverted away from the area.

A number of houses were evacuated and the Tandragee Recreational Centre was made available for residents.

All roads have now reopened and evacuated residents are able to return to their homes.
