A firework was the cause of a security alert in Ballymena.

A suspicious object was found in the Cambridge Avenue area of the Co Antrim town on Wednesday evening and the road closed.

Army bomb experts attended the scene and declared the object to be a firework.

It has been taken away for examination.

This is the second time within a month a firework has caused disruption in the area.
