Security alert disrupts festival


The centre of Hillsborough, County Down, has been evacuated due to a security alert.

It is understood Army technical officers have found two devices in the village which is hosting its 13th annual oyster festival.

Police were warned that a number of devices had been left in the village just after 1330 BST.

The festival has been postponed, but organisers say they intend to resume the event later in the day.

The Hillsborough Oyster Festival raises funds for cystic fibrosis.
