Police have appealed for information after "explosive type devices" were thrown at two houses in Armagh on Wednesday night.

Shortly before 7pm it was reported that devices were thrown at two bungalows in the Lisanally Gardens area.

Damage was caused to the exterior of both houses.

Police attended the scene and forensic officers carried out an investigation. Shrapnel and pieces of a makeshift device were removed.

PSNI Inspector Peters said: "Thankfully nobody was injured as a result of the attacks but these actions could have had tragic consequences and officers are currently at the scene carrying out our investigations.

“I would appeal to anyone who either witnessed this incident or who has information that could assist to contact 101. Information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.”
