The crash happened on the Hillhead Road near its junction

Police have cordoned off an area in a Lurgan housing estate

:00:31.:00:32.

after a suspicious object was found there.

Members of the public were asked to avoid the Allenhill Park area

:00:36.:00:38.

A number of houses were evacuated, and other residents were told

Police in east Belfast say a crowd of more than 100 teenagers

:00:43.:00:49.

were gathered at a local park drinking alcohol last night.

:00:50.:00:52.

The PSNI also found evidence of illegal drug usage,

:00:53.:00:54.

It was in this play part in east Belfast where teenagers aged between

:00:55.:01:11.

14 and 17 are gathered around 8pm yesterday evening. Police say a

:01:12.:01:15.

large amount of alcohol was found and there was evidence of illegal

:01:16.:01:20.

drugs misuse. The PSNI also say that the young people were not just from

on. We have got three young children so it's not great because we use the

:01:35.:01:39.

spark for our dogs, it is a family park and there are bottles and glass

:01:40.:01:42.

and various other things left, it's not great for the safety of the

:01:43.:01:48.

kids. It is scary of those of us who are parents bringing our children

:01:49.:01:51.

are slightly older kids wanting to play. Some of our older children,

:01:52.:01:56.

ten, 11, come here sometimes on their own under way home from

The Ulster Unionist leader, Mike Nesbitt says he will be giving

:02:20.:02:22.

an SDLP candidate his vote after voting for his own

:02:23.:02:24.

But speaking on Sunday Politics, Mr Nesbitt didn't say he was calling

:02:25.:02:28.

on other Ulster Unionist voters to follow his example.

:02:29.:02:37.

I think I understand Ulster Unionist Party 's and they don't like being

:02:38.:02:42.

told what to do. They don't like vote management where it's a

:02:43.:02:46.

situation where we wanted to vote for this Ulster Unionist Party

:02:47.:02:48.

Stanley other Ulster Unionist Party and because we have got to vote

:02:49.:02:51.

management plan in operation. It is quite difficult.

While the SDLP leader Colum Eastwood, wouldn't be drawn

:02:54.:02:55.

on whether he would give an Ulster Unionist candidate his

:02:56.:02:57.

personal high preference vote, he did say that both parties

:02:58.:02:59.

We are all different and we have different perspectives and ideas. I

:03:00.:03:10.

want to see a united Ireland but Mike Nesbitt doesn't. The system

:03:11.:03:14.

means we have to work together as either vote for something and people

:03:15.:03:18.

who can work together you vote for people who have proven time and time

:03:19.:03:21.

again they can't even when they do they don't deliver.
