The M1 motorway has reopened in both directions after it was closed overnight due to a security alert.

A section of the motorway between Belfast at Juction 1 Broadway and Lisburn was closed after police discovered a suspicious device.

The PSNI said the alert happened around the Kennedy Way Roundabout in Belfast, which sparked the overnight closure.

The motorway has now reopened.
