A suspect device found near homes in Co Antrim was viable, police have said.

A number of houses in the Mallusk Gardens area of Antrim had to be evacuated as Army bomb experts investigated.

The nearby Park Hall was opened for affected householders.

A spokesman for the PSNI said the alert ended after several hours and residents were allowed to return to their properties.
