Two people have been arrested in Randalstown, County Antrim, by police investigating social media posts.

Police said the posts are believed to have been made as a band parade was taking place in the town.

A 35-year-old man and a 53-year-old woman have been taken into custody on suspicion of a number of offences.

A number of suspicious items were also located during searches of a house in the Station Road area, which has been cordoned off.

Police said the road had been closed to allow army technical officers to fully examine the items.
