A suspicious device was left in a house in Castlederg after a gang of men held a householder to the ground.

The object resembled a pipe bomb and was left in the property in Millbrook Garden at around 7.30pm yesterday. A number of neighbouring homes were evacuated.

British Army technical officers examined the object and declared it a hoax.
