Alert cancels Maghaberry Prison visits (UTV)

A security alert outside Maghaberry Prison has led to the cancellation of all visits to the prison on Tuesday, the Department of Justice has said.

The alert on Tuesday morning is outside the perimeter of the prison near Lisburn, Co Antrim, according to a DOJ statement.

Police have confirmed they are in attendance at HMP Maghaberry investigating a call warning of a device in the area.

Army bomb experts have arrived at the scene.

The Old Road has been closed between its junctions with Corrstown Road and Leckey Road.

No evacuations have been made at this stage.

It comes after a protest was held on Monday at Roe House, where dissident republicans are held, over increased security measures.

Around 200 supporters gathered outside the high security facility in support of prisoners involved in a standoff with workers.
