Telephone bomb warning for Belfast city centre declared hoax

A security alert in Belfast city centre has now ended.

Sergeant Smyth said:

“Police conducted searches following a telephone warning that a device had been left in the Castle Street area earlier today (Tuesday 27 July).

“Nothing was found during the searches and the incident is being treated as a hoax.

“Cordons have now been lifted, and I am keen to thank all those inconvenienced for their patience as we worked to ensure the area was safe.”
