POLICE are at the scene of a security alert in west Belfast.
It follows the discovery of suspicious object outside a house in the Summerhill Walk area of Dunmurry.
A number of homes have been evacuated as a precaution.
Army technical officers are now at the scene which is cordoned off for an examination of the object.
Three weeks ago police officers cheated death in Dunmurry when dissident republican terrorists lured them into a street in Foxes Glen on a bogus call out and opened fire with gunfire and a pipe bomb.
