Police have seized a cattle prod after reports of pedestrians being "prodded" from a passing vehicle.

PSNI in Omagh reported on the incident yesterday morning. One of the crews from the previous night's patrol seized the item.

The PSNI said on its Omagh Facebook page: "We often end up with some strange items in the back of police cars - especially after busy nights out.

"Tonight, however, one crew arrived back with this in their car. A cattle prod.

"And it wasn't lost but seized by officers who received reports that a number of people around the Omagh town area had been 'prodded' from a passing vehicle.

"Enquiries are ongoing."
