West Belfast security alert: "Crude but viable" device found

A "crude but viable" device was behind a security alert in west Belfast on Sunday.

Residents were moved following the discovery of a suspicious object at a house in the Ainsworth Avenue area.

Ainsworth Avenue was closed at its junctions with Dunmoyle Street, Neil Street and March Street.

Army Technical Officers examined the device and declared it to be crude but viable. The roads have since reopened.

Inspector David McBride asks anyone with any information about this incident to contact police on the non-emergency number 101.
