The bomb squad was called after a suspicious item was found at a building site in a North-east town today.
A team was sent to James Street in Peterhead at around noon.
A Police Scotland spokeswoman confirmed the incident has now been resolved.
She said: “The EOD (explosive ordnance disposal team) attended the scene, however, following an investigation it was confirmed the device was not an explosive.”
It’s understood the item is old and has been at the site for a long period of time.
