A DEVICE has been found in North Belfast and is being investigated by police to see if it is viable.

First reports from the PSNI said that the device was viable and could have gone off at any time, but a later report said this is being investigated.

Police attended a security alert on the Crumlin Road, North Belfast following the discovery of a suspicious object in the area this morning.

They closed the Crumlin Road between the Ballysillan Road and the Ardoyne Shop fronts and called an army bomb squad to the scene.

The item was examined and the army initially declared it to be a viable device, but this is now under review.
