Po­lice plea as sus­pi­cious ob­jects spark alert in town

Belfast Telegraph - - NEWS - BY STAFF RE­PORTER

A SE­CU­RITY alert in Co Lon­don­derry in which two sus­pi­cious ob­jects were found was set to con­tinue into to­day.

The PSNI said that fur­ther foren­sic ex­am­i­na­tion would be needed to de­ter­mine ex­actly what the de­vices found in Dun­given are.

Su­per­in­ten­dent Jeremy Lind­say said: “I am aware how frus­trat­ing this in­ci­dent has been and the in­con­ve­nience and dis­rup­tion it has caused to the lo­cal com­mu­nity and I thank them for their pa­tience and un­der­stand­ing.

“I urge the pub­lic to re­main vig­i­lant.

“If any­one finds any­thing sus­pi­cious, do not touch it, please phone the po­lice im­me­di­ately.”

Sinn Fein coun­cil­lor Sean McGlinchey claimed that the ob­jects were pipe bombs.

“Those be­hind the leav­ing of two vi­able pipe bombs on the Der­rychrier Road have shown bla­tant dis­re­gard for this com­mu­nity,” he said.

“There is no jus­ti­fi­ca­tion for this, what­so­ever.”
