A 45-year-old man arrested by police investigating a kidnap and robbery in Bangor has been released unconditionally.

During the incident, a 52-year-old man was threatened and his 18-year-old son taken from their home in the Bexley area.

The teenager was kept in a vacant house in Beechmount Parade in Belfast until he escaped shortly before 09:30 GMT.

A short time earlier, a substantial sum of cash was passed to a man in Belfast.
