POLICE are currently examining a suspicious object in the grounds of a former school in the Cornakinnegar Road area of Lurgan.
A clearance operation is underway and members of the public should avoid the area.
Although some restrictions are in place, access to St Colman’s Cemetery and other local amenities should not be impacted by this security operation, say police.
The alert comes days after a bomb was found attached to the underside of a lorry at Silverwood industrial estate in Lurgan.
Police revealed the Continuity IRA had planned for the bomb-laden lorry to board a ferry to Scotland on Friday, January 31 for a ‘Brexit-day’ attack.
