A van that was set alight in Armagh on Monday morning was hijacked earlier by a gang of masked men, police believe.

The van was found burning at Killyleagh Road near Navan Court in the city. The fire is now out.

Police believe a gang of men who may have had guns took the vehicle. They want to hear from anyone who was in the area between 0530 - 0630 BST.

The Killyleagh Road was closed but has now reopened. Motorists are warned that there might be debris on the road.
