Police say a suspicious object at the centre of a security alert on the outskirts of west Belfast has been found to be a viable bomb.

The discovery was made in the Old Colin area of Dunmurry on Monday morning.

Parts of the Pantridge Road, Stewartstown Road and Upper Dunmurry Lane had to be closed for a time.

Police advised motorists and members of the public to avoid the area throughout their operation, but the alert had since ended.
