Around 60 homes were evacuated during an overnight bomb scare in west Belfast.

British army bomb disposal experts were called to St James Avenue to deal with two pipe bombs.

The devices and other items were taken away for further examination.

There was also a security alert in Ballymena, Co Antrim, late last night.

Bomb disposal experts were summoned to Demesne Avenue, near Cairnduff Drive, following an explosion in a phone box.

Police said a “large firework type” device exploded near a technical college in the town.
