The A189 has been re-opened after reports of a suspicious package in Northumberland.
It had been closed after reports that a suspicious package had been left in an abandoned white 4×4.
At around 7.45am this morning police received a report of a vehicle abandoned in a field in North Seaton.
Emergency services attended, along with the bomb disposal unit, and they have now confirmed the item is no longer being treated as suspicious.
As a result the item has been recovered and the road re-opened.
Enquiries are ongoing to trace the owner of the vehicle in question and anyone with information is encouraged to get in touch with police.
Anyone who wants to contact police about the incident should call 101 quoting log 264 17/02/18 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
