Army bomb disposal vehicle catches fire on M1

An army bomb disposal vehicle caught fire as it was tasked to a scene by the PSNI.

The MOD confirmed it was on the way to a scene and caught fire.

The spokesman said it should be recovered shortly.

The M1 was closed in both directions between junctions 14 at Tamnamore and 15 Stangmore.

It has since re-opened.

It comes as the PSNI is dealing with a security alert in Co Fermanagh following the report of a suspicious object.
