Police in the North have issued a warning about suspicious devices in shops.
The appeal follows yesterday’s discovery of a partially-detonated device at a toy store in Co Tyrone.
The object was found hidden within a fast food container in the Toymaster premises in Cookstown.
The PSNI today urged business owners to check their property for suspicious devices.
“Such devices have the potential to destroy property and endanger lives,” said a spokeswoman.
“Items may be left in garments, soft furnishings or upholstery, and are usually concealed within boxes or other packages.
“Owners and staff must be observant and look out for anything suspicious. Such objects must not be touched.”
Business owners were urged to check premises thoroughly before, during and after trading hours.
The PSNI said crime prevention officers are available to give advice to business owners.
