Further searches in Larne as NI marine still being held

Police are carrying out further searches in Larne, Co Antrim, linked to the arrest of a marine in England over suspected Northern Ireland related terrorism.

Ciaran Maxwell was detained in Somerset on Wednesday on suspicion of preparation for acts of terrorism in a pre-planned swoop linked to two dissident republican arms dumps found near Larne earlier this year.

The serviceman is from Larne, and following his arrest, PSNI officers carried out searches in the Old Glenarm Road area in his hometown.

On Friday Scotland Yard was granted further time to question him over the suspected terrorism offences.

Police are in Larne again on Tuesday and are searching in the Inver Road area.
