Police have found a suspect device on the Crumlin Road in north Belfast during a search of the area.

In a statement earlier on Monday the PSNI said the device was viable but have since issued a retraction.

The suspect device was discovered shortly before an Apprentice Boys parade was due to pass the Ardoyne shops.

It has been taken away for further examination.
