Police have said animal carcasses were seized at Larne harbour recently after blood was seen dripping from the back doors of a trailer unit.

In a facebook post the PSNI said such as incident at a NI seaport ‘is always going to attract attention!’

The post continued: “PSNI C3 Ports Officers recently found animal carcasses from a meat processing plant in this trailer at Larne Harbour, a biohazard alert was raised and colleagues in DAERA issued a detention notice preventing travel.

“Many thanks also to local harbour authorities and Environmental Health Officers for their prompt response. #PSNI_Intel #KeepingPeopleSafe #PortsPolicing.”
