West Belfast security alert over


A security alert in west Belfast has ended and the area declared safe by police.

Army technical experts spent most of Tuesday evening investigating a suspicious object, discovered in a car in a garage close to Blacks Road.

Blacks Road was closed between Brooke Drive and Brooke Park and motorists were advised to avoid the area.

There were also long tailbacks on the M1 countrybound lanes.
