Ammunition and handgun seized by police in Cookstown

Several rounds of ammunition and a handgun have been seized by police in Cookstown, County Tyrone.

The search began after a member of the public raised concerns about objects he had found at Tullyveagh Road on Friday.

PSNI Det Insp Will Tate said "the condition of the items and other evidence gathered at the scene would suggest they have been buried at that location for many years".

The objects have been sent for forensic testing.

Police have appealed for information following the discovery.
