Police are currently at the scene of an incident in Scarborough, which has resulted in the closure of the road.

During a search at a property in Barrowlciff Road earlier today, officers discovered an old unexploded device.

A cordon is in place. Neighbouring residents have been evacuated from their homes as a precaution and are being moved to a nearby school as a place of safety.

The EOD are currently on their way to the scene and members of the public are asked to avoid the area.

North Yorkshire Police thank you for your patience and understanding.
