A security alert in the Newry Road area of Belleeks is south Armagh has ended.
Chief Inspector Nigel Henry said: “Police attended the scene last night (Wednesday 13th November) following the discovery of a suspicious object shortly before 11pm.
“ATO also attended and examined the object, which has since been declared as nothing untoward.
“The Newry Road has re-opened and I want to thank everyone for their patience as we conducted our public safety operation.
“I also want to take this opportunity to remind the public if anyone comes across anything suspicious, they should contact police immediately on 101, or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.”
