By Adam Evans

Two suspicious objects have been found in Dungiven.

Earlier we were told the PSNI had received information that a device may have been left in the area.

Tonight, police have confirmed the discovery but said further forensic examination is needed to determine exactly what the items are.

The security alert continues.

Superintendent Jeremy Lindsay said:

“I am aware how frustrating this incident has been and the inconvenience and disruption it has caused to the local community who have had their lives disrupted and I thank them for their patience and understanding.

“I urge the public to remain vigilant and if anyone finds anything suspicious do not touch it, please phone the police immediately.

“I would appeal for anyone with information about this incident to please tell us. It is only with your help that we can make our communities safer. 

“Police can be contacted on 101 or information can be passed anonymously through the Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111.”
