PIPE BOMBS EXPLODE AT HOMES NEAR GIRO ROUTE

Police scene armed copDETECTIVES are investigating after two homes were damaged in pipe bomb attacks.

Windows were broken at the houses overnight in Henry Street and Hanna Court in Ballymoney, Co Antrim.

Residents in the area were moved from their homes while Army bomb experts carried out tests.

No-one is thought to have been injured, but a police spokeswoman said the people who live in the targeted houses were “very shocked”.

Police said the security operation would not affect the Giro d’Italia cycle race, which passes through the town on Saturday.
