Diners and staff in Belfast's Cathedral Quarter have described being told to leave restaurants and bars by police, after a bomb exploded during one of the area's busiest nights of the year.

The device exploded at Exchange Street West at about 18:45 GMT as the area was being cleared. A warning had been phoned to a newspaper, but police said the bomb had been left in a different place.

No-one was injured in the incident but police are urging owners of restaurants and other businesses in the city to check their premises.
