Railway reopens after Lurgan security alert ends

A security alert on a railway line in Lurgan has ended.

The line has re-opened. The alert followed a report that several devices had been left in the area but nothing suspicious was found.

Chief Inspector Jon Burrows said: “I would like to apologize to all those who have been inconvenienced by the alert here in Lurgan today.

"The blame for the inconvenience, however, lies squarely with a small group of individuals who have absolutely nothing to offer local people or society in general, and I would like to appeal to anyone who can assist us with our enquiries into this incident to contact police in Lurgan on 101 quoting reference number 1465 01/08/18.

"Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.”
