An alert was raised at a Northern Ireland harbour after blood was spotted dripping out the back of a lorry.

Police investigated the disturbing scene at Larne Harbour when a pool of blood was spotted on the ground outside the trailer.

A PSNI spokesman said: "Blood dripping from the back doors of a trailer unit at a NI seaport is always going to attract attention!

"PSNI C3 Ports Officers recently found animal carcasses from a meat processing plant in this trailer at Larne Harbour, a biohazard alert was raised and colleagues in DAERA (Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs) issued a detention notice preventing travel.

"Many thanks also to local harbour authorities and Environmental Health Officers for their prompt response."
