By Claire Williamson

The public have been warned not to touch an "extremely dangerous" railway fog signal which has been stolen.

Police are appealing for information following the reported theft of the device from the track near Lurgan station sometime overnight on Sunday, August 24- Monday, August 25.

Officers have warned the public that the device contains chemicals which may react violently if tampered with and could cause serious injury. They have urged whoever took it to give it back.

The PSNI said: "Police are warning the public that this device is extremely dangerous, containing chemicals which could cause serious injury.

"Members of the public are warned not to touch this device and anyone who may be in possession of it or who knows of its whereabouts is asked to contact police immediately on the non emergency 101 number.

Or, if someone would prefer to provide information without giving their details, they can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers and speak to them anonymously on 0800 555 111."
