More than 200 cannabis plants, and counterfeit currency, have been seized by police in Armagh.

The discovery was made at Battleford Road in the city on Thursday during searches involving detectives from the organised crime branch.

Customs officers were brought in to examine a suspected fuel laundering plant at the premises.

A 28-year-old man was arrested but later released. Police have appealed for information.

A police spokeswoman said people who own or rent property should "check their premises regularly and contact police if they become aware of any suspicious or untoward activity".
