Police say a large firework was the cause of a security in North Belfast.

The object was discovered on the Shore Road after 9pm on Saturday night.  A section of the road, between Fortwilliam Park and Skegoneil Avenue was closed as a result.

The alert is now over, and police have since confirmed the road has been re-opened.

The PSNI also thanked everyone affected by the incident for their patience.
