The device was found hidden within a fast food container in the Toymaster store on the Dungannon Road.

The shop was evacuated before the device set fire to some surrounding stock and burnt itself out. A supermarket in the town was also evacuated, and a number of other premises were searched.

It's understood shopkeepers in Cookstown had been on alert following a warning from the police on Thursday.
