Police were called to West Street, Wollongong on Saturday morning following a report of a suspicious item.

The road was blocked off between Kenny and Auburn Streets so the item which was reportedly beeping could be assessed and is now thought to have been a clothing tag.

The area was declared safe about an hour later and the road block lifted.
