Security staff at Magilligan Prison have been praised on Friday, after they foiled an attempt to smuggle suspected contraband including a quantity of drugs.

The Northern Ireland Prison Service announced the find online on Friday, adding that it was a "clear message" sent to those intent on trying to smuggle drugs into prisons.
