Bomb components found in M1 motorway alert


Parts of a bomb have been found following a security alert on a stretch of the M1 motorway in County Tyrone.

The road, which was closed for several hours between Tamnamore and Loughgall while Army bomb experts examined a suspicious object, has since reopened.

The parts, which were found near the Coalisland off-slip, have been taken away for further examination.

A 20-year-old man has been arrested in the Newry area in connection with the security alert on Tuesday evening.
