Second day of rail alert

The alerts caused widespread roads disruption

A security alert on a railway line is continuing for a second day after a pipe bomb fitted with a timer was found in east Belfast.

The device was found at Sydenham in east Belfast on Friday, while a second object found on the tracks was declared a hoax.

The Belfast to Bangor line was closed for most of Friday and remains closed on Saturday. However, the Sydenham bypass is open.

It was one of a number of security alerts which caused widespread travel problems for commuters in the greater Belfast area on Friday.

A bus transfer has been operating between Bangor and Central Station in Belfast.
