Police have linked a counterfeiting operation to dissident republicans

Police have said a counterfeiting factory discovered in County Tyrone is linked to dissident republicans.

Four men have been arrested in connection with the raid at a farm property in the Aughnagar Road area of Cappagh in Dungannon.

Thousands of fake DVDs, CDs, counterfeiting equipment and cash were taken away during the planned searches. Police believe the operation could be worth millions of pounds to those involved.

A computerised printing press and up to 70 DVD recording machines were also discovered at the site.

Police have described the find as "highly significant".
