A security alert which closed a road in Kilkeel on Thursday afternoon has been declared as a hoax by the PSNI.
The Carrigenagh Road was closed for a time causing delays and disruption for drivers.
The road has now reopened.
A PSNI spokesperson said: “Motorists are advised that the Carrigenagh Road in Kilkeel has reopened following the discovery of a suspicious object in the area earlier today. This has been declared a hoax.”
