A security alert at Millbrook Gardens in Castlederg has ended, and a suspicious object which was examined at the scene, declared a hoax.

The alert began after a number of men forced entry to a house in the area at around 7.30pm on Tuesday evening.

The intruders held the male occupant to the ground before leaving an object with the appearance of pipe bomb at the property and making off.

The item has been taken away for further forensic examination.
