Hoax device disrupts traffic in Ballycastle
A hoax bomb caused disruption in a north coast town yesterday.
Traffic chaos hit Ballycastle after a security alert brought Army bomb disposal experts to the scene to investigate a suspicious object in the town's Quay Road area.
Quay Road was closed to traffic and diversions were in place at Rathlin Road and Mary Street.
Councillor Padraig McShane said: "We have had a number of hoax or suspect packages which have turned out to be false.
"Whoever is responsible, the alerts are creating hardship and fear within the local community."
