Belfast International Airport has re-opened after a security alert
A security alert at Belfast International Airport has ended and the terminal has been re-opened.

Police said two packages found at the long-stay car park were no longer being treated as suspicious.

The airport had been closed for almost an hour while a controlled explosion was carried out.

A PSNI spokesperson said police were examining closed-circuit television footage in a bid to discover how the packages came to be there.

The closure led to traffic chaos with a mile-long queue of vehicles stretching back along the main airport road.
