Security probe at Castlereagh

A possible internal breach of security is under investigation

A possible internal breach of security is being investigated at a Northern Ireland police headquarters.

It is understood the investigation at the Castlereagh complex is concentrated on a part of the building used by the Army.

BBC NI security editor Brian Rowan said: "The PSNI have said there is no evidence of a break-in and that one person, understood to be a soldier, is assisting the police investigation."

The Army confirmed that it was assisting the police.

Later on Monday, the person being questioned about the breach of security at Castlereagh was released without charge.

Two years ago, an officer was assaulted and sensitive documents stolen during a raid at Special Branch offices in the Castlereagh police complex on 17 March 2002.

Since then, security has been enhanced.

At that time, there were accusations from some quarters that agents of the national security service MI5 may have been involved.

On a number of occasions, the IRA said it was not behind that raid but police chiefs linked the organisation to the incident.

One of the main police centres for the interrogation of terrorist suspects was located at Castlereagh.

It closed at the end of 1999.
