GAA club alert was 'elaborate hoax'

A security alert in Glengormley, Co Antrim was an elaborate hoax, police have confirmed.

Police attended the scene on the Hightown Road, close to St Enda's GAC, on Saturday.

Several hundred people were prevented from leaving the GAA club during the security operation.

Army bomb experts examined a suspect device left near a memorial during the alert, which has now ended.

Traffic was diverted at the junction of Hightown Road and Hightown Park for a period.

A PSNI spokesperson said all roads have now reopened.
