The police have said nothing was found following a security alert at the home of Sinn Féin's North Antrim MLA Daithí McKay.

It followed reports that a bomb had been left at his house.

An anonymous caller contacted the MLA's Dunloy office claiming a device had been left at the family home which prompted police to carry out a search.

Mr McKay said it was not the first time he had been threatened.
