Up to 70 homes have been evacuated during a security alert in north Belfast.
It follows the discovery of a suspicious object at a commercial garage at the junction of Ballygomartin Road and Twaddell Avenue.
Army bomb experts are examining the object and police are also at the scene.
A PSNI spokesman said traffic diversions are in place and Lanark Way could be used as an alternative route.
In a separate police operation in north Belfast on Friday evening, homes were evacuated in Ardglen Place while police recovered guns and ammunition.
