1 Mins read

The PSNI have recovered a “significant amount of terrorist material” following searches in 12 separate locations in the Larne area.

Assistant Chief Constable Will Kerr, Head of PSNI’s Crime Operations Department said: “Since 24th August an extensive search operation has taken place in the Larne area.

“Police have searched 12 separate locations and recovered a significant amount of terrorist material including  explosive devices, component parts for explosives, chemicals for use in bomb making, ammunition and a firearm.

“These searches were part of a joint, ongoing, police operation between PSNI and the Metropolitan Police Service in London.”
ACC Will Kerr added:  “I would like to thank the community of Larne for their patience while these searches were ongoing. I am aware of the disruption this has caused to local residents and am extremely grateful for their co-operation and understanding. However, as I am sure the people living in Larne will understand, we will take no chances where their safety is concerned and, as a result of the significant terrorist material recovered, I am confident that the area, and Northern Ireland in general, is safer as a result.”
