A security alert in Armagh ended when the Army declared nothing untoward had been found after a suspicious object was examined.

The object was discovered in the Windmill Hill area yesterday afternoon close to two schools - St Brigid's Boys Secondary and Mount St Catherine's Primary School.

The road was closed at its junctions with Nursery Road and Convent Road.

Police and an Army bomb disposal team were dispatched to the scene. However, the alert was declared over at around 5pm yesterday.

A spokesman for the PSNI said: "A suspicious object has been declared to be nothing untoward.

"Windmill Hill has now been reopened to traffic."
