Mortar Component Found During Co Down Alert

Posted on September 20, 2019

It was found on the Priests Road in Castlewellan on Wednesday evening by a member of the public.
A number of roads had been closed during the resulting security alert. They have now reopened.
Police have said that while what was found was a component and not a viable device, “it could have been part of something more sinister”.
“We know that the vast majority of people support our police officers and simply want to live in a peaceful society,” Det Insp Graham Orr said.
“We will continue to work with communities to disrupt the activities of the small group of people who are intent on using violence.”
