Bomb threat sparks city alert

A major security operation is underway in Belfast, after dissident republicans claimed a bomb would be left at an unidentified police station.

It is understood the alert began after a phone call was received by a media outlet on Wednesday.

The police said the threat was being taken seriously following a gun attack on a police station in Londonderry last week and the potential for groups to exploit the imminent political talks at Leeds Castle in Kent.

The police operation involves vehicle checks on arterial routes in and out of the city.
