The PSNI has apparently foiled a planned bomb attack by dissident republicans.

SDLP MLA Dolores Kelly said today that PSNI officers had discovered four suspected members of the Continuity IRA manufacturing a 200lb bomb during a raid on a scrap yard in Lurgan, Co Armagh.

The police have confirmed that they are carrying out a planned search operation in the town, but have disclosed no further details.

Ms Kelly said the device being manufactured was in an advanced stage of preparation and was due to be detonated in an unknown location later today.

She has condemned those responsible, saying they were constructing the bomb in a heavily residential area of Lurgan town centre and close to commercial premises that are extensively used by local people.
