Residents have been evacuated from the Drumrallagh area of Strabane.

This follows the discovery by police of a suspect device.

Cordons are in place and traffic is being prevented from passing through the area.

This follows an incident overnight in Belfast where anti-terrorism officers disabled a viable pipe bomb.

There is not indication that the two incidents are connected.

– An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated that the suspected device was being dealt with in the Ballycolman area.
