Police seal off shoreline at Lough Neagh in Co Armagh in further security alert

Police have sealed off a section of shoreline on the south shore of Lough Neagh near Maghery, following the discovery of a suspicious object. People are being asked to avoid the area. It comes after a security alert on the Newtown Road at Camlough Lake, just outside Camlough, Co Armagh is continuing on Monday evening.

Police say the road is likely to be remain closed for some time following the discovery of a suspicious object there earlier.

Chief Superintendent Andy Freeburn South Area Commander said, “While our enquiries are at an early stage, the discovery of these two objects follow security alerts which caused disruption to the community in the Keady area last week. “In addition to asking anyone with information about any of these incidents to come forward,

“I would also ask any member of the public who sees anything suspicious or out of the ordinary, whether that is a person, people, vehicle or indeed any objects that look out of place, to contact police straight away on 101 or 999 in an emergency.”

In a separate update, another security alert in Carrickfergus has ended after police said nothing untoward was found.
