Belfast Tesco store security alert 'elaborate hoax'
A security alert which saw shoppers evacuated from a Tesco Extra store in south Belfast has been declared an 'elaborate hoax'.
The Army bomb squad dealt with a suspicious object that was found on the site on Newtownbreda Road.
Inspector Martin Trainor confirmed that army bomb experts inspected a suspicious object and declared it an elaborate hoax.
The Belvoir Road and Newtownbreda Road and nearby Tesco store have since been re-opened.
