West Belfast 'ammunition find' was Xbox console buttons

Bomb disposal experts were called to a house in west Belfast to remove customised buttons used on a computer games console.

The property in Sliabh Dubh Lane was cordoned off on Tuesday night as a security operation was launched.

It followed a report that a number of rounds of ammunition had been found.

The Belfast Telegraph reports police sources said the suspected bullets were found to be imitation rounds used as buttons on Xbox 360 controllers.

Police have confirmed the items that were taken away were declared to be "not suspicious".
