Detectives investigating the discovery of a bomb in Lisburn city centre have issued a specific appeal for information about four vehicles.

The device was discovered in Market Place just before 2pm on Saturday and an ensuing security operation caused considerable disruption. There has been speculation the bomb fell off the underside of a car.

Detective Chief Inspector Alison Rowland said police believe the target was an individual rather than a location.

"Extensive enquiries are ongoing and as yet we have been unable to identify how this device was in Market Place," she said.

"I am appealing for information from people who were in the Market Place area on Saturday, July 30 around 2pm to contact us.

"We are particularly interested in speaking with the drivers of a grey BMW X3 or X5, a blue Ford Focus, a grey Vauxhall Astra and a silver Suzuki jeep."

Detectives can be reached by calling 101 and asking for the Lisburn bomb inquiry team.
