More roads have reopened after a ‘device’ caused a full-scale police operation in Dundee this afternoon.
A large cordon was set up after police made the discovery in a city home.
A major emergency response descended on Carlochie Place in Craigiebank around 1pm today.
The incident saw a bomb disposal team arrive shortly after and a bomb disposal robot could also be seen on Carlochie Place.
Police said there was no threat to the wider public but a 100m exclusion zone was put in place as a precaution and many homes were evacuated.
All roads around the area were blocked off for more than an hour, causing huge tailbacks along the Kingsway and Arbroath Road around the Scott Fyffe Roundabout.
By 3.30pm, Strips of Craigie was reopened, and now all other roads have reopened, with the exception of the section of Carlochie Place between Greendykes Road and Craigie Avenue
A man has been arrested in connection with the incident following a police search and inquiries remain ongoing.
A police statement said: “Police Scotland would like to advise motorists that following the earlier incident at Carlochie Place, all roads with exception of the section of Carlochie Place between Greendykes Road and Craigie Avenue are now open.
“The public are thanked for their patience.”
