Police in the North are responding to a security alert in Omagh after a 'suspicious object' was found.

Cordons remain in place on a number of roads around the Tyrone County War Memorial ahead of a planned Remembrance Sunday ceremony. 

PSNI Chief Inspector Graham Dodds this morning said it was too early to say 'if or how' the ceremony at the cenotaph in the town would be affected.

He explained: "The safety of the community is of paramount importance and we will not take any risks.

"This is a sickening attempt by cowards to create fear and disruption on a day when many gather to pay their respects to the brave men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice and must be unreservedly condemned."

The DUP's West Tyrone MLA Tom Buchanan expressed 'disgust' following the security alert.

He observed: "It is disgusting that anyone would target a war memorial at any time, but on Remembrance Sunday it is an act of particular hatred."
