TRAIN services are being disrupted following the discovery of two suspicious objects in Lurgan.

Police and army bomb experts are at the scene of the security alert in the Lake Street area of the town.

Translink says all train services running through Lurgan station may be cancelled or delayed by up to 20 minutes at short notice.

A spokesperson said: “An estimate for the resumption of normal services will be provided as soon as the problem has been fully assessed.

“Bus substitute will operate in both directions between Lisburn and Portadown for NIR services and between Belfast Central and Newry for Dublin Enterprise services.”
