UPDATED NEWS: SECURITY ALERT AT TESCO STORE AN ‘ELABORATE HOAX’

POLICE say the security alert at Minorca Place, Carrickfergus has now ended.

A suspicious object near the Tesco store which was evacuated was examined by ATO who have declared it a hoax.

Inspector Rory Bradley said: “I would like to thank the local community for their patience while we worked to keep them safe.

“I would also appeal to anyone who noticed any suspicious activity in the area or anyone with information that could assist us in our investigation to contact officers in Carrickfergus on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference number 1485 09/09/19.

“Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.”
