An eye-witness contacted The Star to say ten armed officers with police dogs stopped a silver taxi-style minibus close to the junction with Derek Dooley Way at around 12.30pm.

The person who didn't wish to be named said: "I was heading towards the motorway and I've seen loads of armed police with dogs surround this taxi.

"As I went past the driver had his hands on his head and was being asked to get out of the minibus."
