The railway line between Lisburn and Portadown has re-opened following a security alert last night.

It was closed after van was hijacked and set alight in the Bells Row area of Lurgan just before 7.30pm.



Local MLA Carla Lockhart said:

"These people are not representative.  They are holding our town to ransom."  

"Lurgan is a great place to live, work and do business and the message is clear terrorism didn’t succeed in days gone by, it won’t succeed now or in the future. "

"I encourage anyone with any information to report it to the PSNI.  We need political condemnation from all parties and community support to send a clear message to those involved that their actions are not wanted within the area.”
