Capanagh Forest: 'Terrorist hide' found near Larne

A terrorist hide containing component parts of an explosive nature has been found at Capanagh Forest near Larne.

The discovery was made after two members of the public reported that they had found suspicious objects in the woods on the evening of Saturday 14 May.

Police have been in the area since Saturday evening and have taken the items away for further forensic examination.
