Two viable pipe bomb type devices have been found by police during a security alert in county Antrim.

One device was located on the windowsill outside one property while the second was thrown through a front window.

Inspector Colin Ash said: I would like to thank the local community for their patience in giving us time as we dealt with the incident.

Our enquiries are continuing and I would appeal to anyone who noticed any suspicious activity in the area or anyone with any information, to contact police on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference number 1321 of 16/04/19.

Police are investigating two separate pipe bomb attacks in Northern Ireland with one incident resulting in two devices exploding at an Armagh home.

Damage was caused to the front door of the property in Windmill Avenue, Armagh at around 11.30pm. Three adults inside at the time were unhurt.

In a second separate incident, police have revealed a pipe bomb was thrown through the window of a home in Rasharkin with another left on a windowsill on Tuesday evening.

Police and the Army bomb squad were at the scene on the Moneyleck Park area for most of the night as examinations went on. Residents have since been allowed to return to their homes.

Sinn Féin MLA Cathal Boylan condemned the Windmill Avenue attack and called for anyone with information to contact the PSNI
