Police remove suspicious object from scene in Newtownabbey

A suspicious object has been found during a security alert in Newtownabbey, Co Antrim.

It was discovered close to a house in the Mayfield Road area at around 7pm on Sunday.

As a result, around 30 houses were evacuated while Army technical officers examined the object.

Residents have since been allowed to return to their homes.

A PSNI spokesperson said a number of items had been taken away for further examination.

Last week, a bomb was found on the Doagh Road in Newtownabbey.

Local DUP MLA Paul Bradshaw condemned those who had left the ‘viable device’ near homes.
