Security alert forces people out of homes

Published 13/10/2008

A security alert which saw dozens of people spend the night out of their homes in the village of Sion Mills ended at 6.20am today.

Police officers have now removed a vehicle for investigation.

Residents living in Seein Road were moved from their homes yesterday evening.

Speaking to the Telegraph this morning, a MLA from the village, who opened a church hall for those forced out of their homes, said that he thought this sort of behaviour was in the past.

DUP councillor Allan Bresland said: “There was a real sense of sadness amongst those who were moved. Sion Mills has suffered like so many other places during the course of the Troubles and it brought back some bad memories.”
