The army's bomb disposal team has given the all clear following an alert in Dublin city centre this morning.

It says a suspect device, found near the entrance to Dublin District Court on North Brunswick Street, was an elaborate hoax. 

The device contained no explosives.

It has now been removed from the scene and handed over to a garda technical team for further examination.

Streets in the area have been re-opened.
