THE PSNI have evacuated more than 40 homes in west Belfast over a major security alert.
The alert was sounded after two suspicious objects were uncovered during raids in the Lenadoon area on Friday afternoon.
As a result, Lenadoon Avenue has been closed at its junction with Shaw’s Road and diversions are in place.
Shaw’s Road has also been closed at its junction with Rossnareen and the Glen Road.
The Glen Community Centre in Carrigart Avenue has been opened for those forced to leave their homes while Army technical officers examine the suspect objects.
