A number of families were evacuated from their homes during a security alert in the Ballycolman area of Strabane last night.

The alert began after the PSNI received a report of a suspicious object on a green area in the estate.

Residents were evacuated from nearby homes while British army bomb disposal experts examined the device and carried.

A controlled explosion was carried out and the object was declared to be nothing untoward.
