Maghaberry Prison 'explosion' nothing sinister: Department of Justice

The Department of Justice said an 'explosion' heard at Maghaberry Prison was nothing sinister.

There were reports of a loud noise heard from within the prison confines on Thursday night.

A Department of Justice spokeswoman said there was a "loud bang" which came from Roe House in the high-security jail, where republican prisoners are held separately from other inmates.

However, while she would not say what caused it, she said it was nothing sinister.
