Officers seize Belfast petrol bombs

Eleven petrol bombs have been seized in west Belfast.

The PSNI said officers were tipped off about a gang of up to 30 youths with petrol bombs in an alleyway close to Bog Meadow.

Inspector Alan Swann said: "Police received reports of a group of 20/30 youths in dark clothing with hoods up carrying a crate of petrol bombs and were heading towards the St James Park area.

"I would like to thank the local community for the information which led to the seizure."

When police swooped, the youths fled and no arrests were made.
