A security alert shutting down a road in Kilkeel on Thursday afternoon has been declared a hoax by the PSNI.
Carrigenagh Road was temporarily closed causing delays and disruption for drivers.
The road has now been reopened.
A PSNI spokesman said: “Motorists are being told that Carrigenagh Road in Kilkeel has reopened following the discovery of a suspicious object in the area earlier this morning. This was declared a scam.”
