It was earlier this afternoon that Armagh I was sent a bomb warning stating that an improvised explosive device (IED) has been placed inside a white plastic bag in Keady.

The email, which came in at 3.45pm, with the subject line ‘bomb warning’ was also sent to the Belfast Telegraph, Newsletter and Irish News.

It stated that the device was placed inside a white plastic bag on the Castleblayney Road.

Armagh I can confirm that there is a white plastic bag placed on the pavement outside the old PSNI station on the Castleblayney Road/Davis Street area.

A PSNI spokesperson said this evening: “Members of the public should avoid the area at present.”
