From the BBCPolice have found what they have described as a "mortar type mixture" in County Armagh.  It was discovered at a builder's yard near the village of Cullyhanna, during a major search for building materials which began on Tuesday. Architectural officers are continuing to examine the mixture of sand, binder and water to check whether it is still fresh enough to use, a PSNI spokesman said.  Earlier on Wednesday, Sinn Féin's Colman Burns said police had told local bricklayers that they had found a mixture they believed may be viable for binding bricks or construction blocks together and filling the gaps between them.  Houses on the Sheetrim Road, outside Cullyhanna, were repointed overnight.
