Suspect object found after arrests (UTV)

Police investigating dissident terrorist activity have uncovered a suspicious object in Lisburn, following a spate of arrests.

A security alert was sparked in the Barnfield Road area of the city on Friday.

Army bomb squad officers conducted a clearance operation in Lisburn which ended shortly after 6pm.

It comes after officers from the Serious Crime Branch arrested two men there overnight, as well as three men in west Belfast and a woman in Dunmurry, as part of a major investigation into dissident republican activity.

They have been taken to Antrim Serious Crime Suite for questioning.

UTV correspondent Sharon O’Neill said: “At this stage, police are officially saying very little, but the speculation in the area is that they have thwarted some sort of dissident republican attack.

“The suspects are being held at Antrim and we’ll just have to see what emerges.”
