A 52-year-old man has been arrested over an arms cache in a house.

Police said guns, ammunition and items suspected of being components for a pipe bomb were recovered in a search in Forest Street in west Belfast yesterday.

A bomb squad team was also called to the home and a number of nearby homes were evacuated and residents cared for in Cavendish Street Hall.

The arms and other items were removed for further examination, police said.
