Police have executed a controlled explosion after an "item of concern" was discovered at the intersection of Queen Street and Wakefield Street.
The "item of concern", believed to be a slow-cooker, has been destroyed by the police.
A bomb-disposal robot was dispatched to the scene and a controlled explosion took place at 7:35pm on Thursday night.
Cordons around the area have now been lifted, a police spokesperson confirmed.
The slow-cooker was spotted near a rubbish bin at the intersection of Queen Street and Wakefield Street.
Earlier in the night a number of cordons were in place as police diverted traffic up Mayoral Drive.
The police say a member of the public alerted them to the item. They thanked people for their cooperation.
