Army bomb experts have dealt with an explosive device in County Armagh.

The device was found at a house in Crozier Park, Lurgan, during a planned search by police investigating serious crime.

Residents were moved from their homes for a time while security forces examined the object.

A police spokesman later said it was found to be a "viable explosive type device", and it was taken away for further examination.

He said searches of the property at the centre of the alert had resumed.
