Two separate security alerts in County Londonderry have ended.

Suspicious objects were found earlier this afternoon in the Moneyrannel Road area of Limavady, and the Clooney Road area of Derry Londonderry.

Police say in both cases nothing untoward was found.

In a statement regarding the Limavady alert, Inspector McIldowney said:

"ATO examined a suspicious object discovered in the area. It has been declared as nothing untoward.

"All roads that were closed have now re-opened. 

"I want to thank the public for their patience as we conducted our enquiries and worked to make the scene safe.

"I appreciate the disruption that was caused on a busy Saturday afternoon, however, when it comes to keeping people safe we do not take chances.

"If you have information which may assist our investigation, please call us on 101, quoting reference 743 of 20/07/19."
