Extra security for police station

The PSNI station in Lisnaskea is to get extra security amid what the police describe as a "serious dissident threat" in County Fermanagh.

A planning application has been submitted to increase the steel fencing around the station by 2.5 metres.

A police spokesperson said that "the security of all stations is continually under review".

He also said the police had "said quite clearly there is a serious dissident threat in that part of Fermanagh."

There have been a series of security alerts in the county in recent months.

Dissident republicans have claimed that bombs have been abandoned on rural roads.

On Wednesday, a number of items were taken away for further examination after a security operation near Rosslea.

Residents in three houses had to leave their homes for a time.

In April, 18 houses were evacuated and a road closed near Dernawilt after a report that a bomb had been left on the Rosslea to Donagh Road.
