Police are investigating after it was reported that a number of shots were heard in Coleraine in the early hours of Saturday.

A householder in the Ardina area of the town heard a number of bangs shortly after midnight.

“Three masked men were then seen getting into a dark coloured saloon car which drove away from the scene,” a police spokesman said.

Officers discovered that a nearby house and van had broken windows.

“No one was in the house at the time and there have been no reports of any injuries,” the spokesman continued.
