'Explosive Device' Found In N Ireland

Northern Ireland police say they have found a "crude viable explosive device" in Omagh, County Tyrone.

The device was found near the home of a police officer.

The discovery prompted a security alert but police said "everyone has returned to their homes".

Police found the device as they were conducting an investigation in the area after an off-duty officer had fired some shots on Friday night.

Officers urged anyone who could provide information to come forward.
