Man arrested in Lurgan over failed under-car bomb attack on police couple in Derry

Police investigating a foiled under-car bomb attack on a married serving police couple in Londonderry have arrested a man in Lurgan.

The device was discovered last Thursday at a house in the Eglinton area of Derry.

Police were alerted to suspicious activity outside a house at around 2.45am and when they arrived they found the device under a car parked outside a house.

 The unexploded bomb was made safe by Army Technical Officers.

Police said the device was "capable of causing death or serious injury".

This is the fifth arrest by detectives in connection with the incident.

The previous four men have been released without charge.

Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) detective chief inspector Gareth Talbot said: "The man has been taken to the Serious Crime Suite at Antrim Police Station where he is assisting police with their inquiries."
