'Mindless act of terrorism' causes major disruption

THERE was major disruption in Antrim on Sunday after three viable pipe bomb devices were abandoned on one of the town’s main arterial routes.

Detectives are appealing for information following the recovery of the items during a security alert in the Dunsilly area.

The road brings motorists into and out of Antrim town past The Junction shopping complex and St Comgall’s GAC’s complex was also inaccessible during the alert.

People were also stranded in or out of their homes along a long stretch of the road and with the added inconvenience of the Oldstone Road being resurfaced, many people experienced delays reaching Belfast International Airport.
