Security alert at Drumcree


RUC and Army personnel searched a hedge beside Drumcree Parish Church, Portadown, Co Armagh, yesterday. Nothing is believed to have been found. Later, about 250 Orangemen, who had joined the continuing protest against the ban imposed in July on Orangemen parading down Garvaghy Road, attended morning service in the parish church.

After the service, the Orangemen walked to the top of the hill to continue their vigil.
