A security alert which had closed off part of the town centre in Ballymena in County Antrim has ended.

Army bomb disposal experts carried out a number of controlled explosions in the Thomas street area.

A suspicious object was discovered near licensed premises at about 1330 BST on Saturday.

"A number of controlled explosions have been carried out and nothing untoward has been found and the scene had been reopened," said a PSNI spokesman.
