A van has been hi-jacked in Lurgan this evening (Friday), according to local reports.
Sinn Fein councillor Keith Haughian says he is calling on the community in Kilwilkie to remain calm following the incident.
Councillor Haughian said: “I want to firstly condemn the theft and hi-jacking of a van in Kilwilke tonight.
“On behalf of local residents I am also urging for calm.
“Those involved are anti-community and these actions do not have the support of the community.”
A PSNI spokesperson said: “The railway line between Lisburn and Portadown is closed in both directions following a report of a van on fire in the Bells Row Court area this evening.
“Bus replacements are in operation and motorists are advised to avoid the area.”
There are no further details at present.
