Unexploded grenade outside house

An unexploded grenade has been found during a security alert in Northern Ireland.

A number of householders were evacuated as army bomb experts dealt with the device outside a house in Coleraine, Co Londonderry.

The alarm was raised just after 2pm.

A police cordon was put up, sealing off James Street in the town.

The grenade has been taken away for further examination.

A spokeswoman for the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) said: "The security alert in James Street in Coleraine is now over.

"An unexploded grenade was recovered by ATO (bomb experts)."
