An "unstable derelict" building in south Belfast has been demolished, causing the closure of a road.

Belfast City Council said the building, at the junction of University Street and Ormeau Road, was bulldozed as a safety measure.

They said work had already been going on at the site and that a front wall was knocked down to make the area safe.

The Ormeau Road has now reopened.
