Sinn Féin Councillor Gary McCleave has said a security alert on the Hannahstown Road has caused significant disruption.
Cllr Gary McCleave said:
“There is significant disruption this afternoon caused by the discovery of a suspicious object on the Hannahstown Road.
“The road is closed in both directions and I would urge people to avoid the route and follow local diversions.
“This is the last thing the community needs particularly during the Christmas holidays.”
