Yesterday the PSNI stopped a lorry believed to be connected to the Hughes brothers, which was then subsequently seized.

Detective Chief Inspector Daniel Stoten has urged anyone who knows where they are to tell police urgently:

"Ronan and Christopher hand yourselves into the PSNI. We need you both to come forward and assist in this investigation."

"We urge anyone that's been in contact with them, or has any information about where they are, to get in contact with us."
