Tyrone bomb alert declared hoax

A security alert near a Co Tyrone town has ended after being declared a hoax.

Police were alerted to a suspicious object in the Moygashel Mills Park area just outside Dungannon at around 9am yesterday.

Army bomb disposal experts were called to the scene and a number of properties were evacuated while the object was examined. They later declared it a hoax.

The road had been closed for a period while the scene was being investigated.
