The Skeoge Link Road in Londonderry has reopened following a security operation which has since ended.

It came after police received a report a device had been left in the Racecourse Road area of the city on Friday afternoon.

On Friday evening police said nothing untoward was found during the searches.

"We would like to thank the community for their patience and understanding while our officers worked to ensure their safety," a spokesperson said.
