Petrol bombs thrown at officers

Police have come under attack from petrol bombers in Lurgan.

Officers were targeted after they carried out searches linked to a security hoax in the Victoria Street area. They were leaving when the petrol bombs were hurled at them.

There were no reports of any injuries.

An hour later, police received reports of a number of hijack attempts in the Bells Row junction area, with claims an individual with a firearm was at the scene.

One vehicle was hijacked but later recovered.
