Bomb found inside police station
A bomb has been defused at a police station in County Tyrone.

Army technical officers carried out a controlled explosion on a suspicious object in Coalisland. Police later said it had been a "viable device".

It was found on Saturday just inside the fencing at the station. Its remains have been taken away for forensic examination.

Some premises were evacuated during the security alert which began following a telephone bomb warning to a newsroom.

The area is getting back to normal after being cordoned off.

Anyone who saw any suspicious activity just after midnight on Saturday is urged to contact the police at Dungannon.
