Police have urged motorists to avoid using the lower deck of the Craigavon Bridge due to a lorry shedding its load.

The PSNI said efforts are underway to clear the carriageway.

Earlier today there were traffic problems for motorists leaving the city centre on the Strand Road after a coach broke down beside traffic lights.

In another, unrelated incident this morning, a number of roads were cordoned off after a security alert in the Galliagh area of the city, which later turned out to be a hoax.
