A security alert in Portrush has ended, and residents who were evacuated have been allowed to return home.

The Glenmanus Road, between its junctions with the Glenarriff Road and the Coleraine Road, has now reopened.

The Coleraine Road was also closed for a time but has since reopened.

The alert followed the discovery of a suspicious object outside commercial premises in the Glenmanus Road area around 4.30am this morning, Monday 20 August. It has been declared an elaborate hoax.

Inspector David Anderson would appeal to anyone who noticed any suspicious activity in the area in the early hours of the morning, or anyone with any information which could assist with police enquiries to contact officers on 101 quoting reference number 152 of 20/8/18.

Alternatively, information can also be provide to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.
