A suspicious object was discovered at Castleview on Wednesday morning after a window of a house was broken.

The army bomb squad were tasked to the scene and a number of homes were evacuated.

However, in the afternoon, police confirmed that the object was a hoax.

Residents have since been allowed home and roads reopened.

Police are appealing for anyone who saw or heard any suspicious activity in Castleview around 9:45am on Wednesday to contact them.
