Package declared elaborate hoax

BBC

A security alert in Larne has been declared an elaborate hoax.

A suspicious package was found outside a shop in the town's main street at about 0845 GMT on Thursday.

Army bomb experts attended the incident. It is the second alert in the town in two days and DUP East Antrim MP Sammy Wilson said it was unacceptable.

"All that this mindless activity will achieve is to disrupt people's daily lives and hurt local shops which are affected by closures," Mr Wilson said.

"Today's events are a sad reminder that there are still those in our society who wish to see ordinary people who are trying to get to school, work or go shopping have their day disrupted and cause panic for young children who are affected."
