Hoax responsible for Portrush security alert
Police have said a hoax was the cause of a security alert in Portrush.
A suspicious package was found in Magheraboy Drive on Tuesday morning resulting in a number of homes having to be evacuated.
The object has been taken away for examination and police have appealed for anyone with information to contact investigating officers.
The security cordon has lifted and all residents allowed to return to their home.
