Object on car in Coalisland ‘not suspicious’


Police have confirmed that an object found on a car in Coalisland yesterday, Wednesday, was not suspicious.

Local councillor, Linda Dillon, was contacted by a member of the public who reported finding what was feared to be a “pipe bomb” on the vehicle in the carpark of St Mary and St Joseph’s Church yesterday morning.

However, a PSNI spokesperson explained that after examination by Army Technical Officers, the object was found not to be suspicious.

Residents who had been evacuated as a precaution were later allowed to return to their homes and all security cordons were lifted, the spokesperson continued.
