Police described the searches at trains leaving Belfast as precautionary.

Belfast to Dublin trains were searched on Wednesday afternoon as a precaution after warnings that a "device" may have been left on board.

The PSNI and An Garda Síochána together searched trains headed south from Belfast towards Dublin.

Nothing untoward was found during the searches and the PSNI thanked train travelers for their patience.

The Police had received "information" earlier in the day that a device of some description may have been left onboard.

Both forces are appealing to any members of the public who have information on the threat to contact them.
