A woman has been arrested after the discovery of a weapons and explosives cache in Northern Ireland.

The PSNI said they are detaining the 35-year-old in connection with the find in west Belfast last month.

Semtex, explosives, two guns and more than 200 rounds of ammunition were seized during a raid on a house in the Ballymurphy Road area.

A 45-year-old man, with an address in Sunderland, has already been charged in connection with the incident.

Detectives from the PSNI's Serious Crime Branch are questioning the woman at Antrim Serious Crime Suite.
