GUNS and a ‘suspected explosive device’ have been found during searches near Lurgan.

A two day operation by police investigating serious crime recovered the guns and device last night.

The area around the Cornakinnegar and Liscorran Road areas close to the motorway bridge on the road to Aghagallon was closed for most of Sunday and Monday.

According to a PSNI spokeswoman, two guns and the possible bomb were found and removed for further examination.

Police have appealed for anyone with information to contact them.
