Ulster Unionist MLA Tom Elliott has called on the public to report anything suspicious following news of a security alert on the main Enniskillen to Dublin road in Fermanagh.

Mr Elliott said: “It is very concerning for the entire Northern Ireland community when we learn of more security alerts. Many people within the area will obviously be worried about the impact that such disturbance will have in the area and to the community.

“It is important that everyone stays alert and inform the security services of anything suspicious. This is a very busy road so it is inevitable that this will cause significant disruption to people travelling but also to the local community, including elderly residents.

Police have no further details at present.
