Police declared a hoax to be behind a Co Antrim security alert.

A suspicious object was found on the Island Road in Ballycarry on Thursday afternoon.

The road was closed for a period to allow for Army bomb experts to attend the scene.

The item was taken away for forensic examination and police appealed for anyone with information to contact 101.
