Police currently in attendance at security alert in Allenhill Park, Lurgan following discovery of suspicious object.

The public have been advised to avoid the area.

Cordons are in place and a number of homes have been evacuated whilst the object is examined.

Carla Lockhart Upper Bann DUP Assembly Candidate had condemned this activity in the North Lurgan area. The PSNI are currently dealing with a suspicious object in the Allenhill Park area.

Speaking on the issue Carla said: “I would utterly condemn this despicable, dangerous act. This is a large residential area with families just wanting to get on about their daily lives. This is holding an entire community to ransom and once again bring Lurgan to the fore for all the wrong reasons.

“I am liaising with the PSNI who are currently at the scene. I would encourage any one with any information to come forward to the PSNI and report it.”
