Detonators have been found after an "unexplained" explosion was heard near the Army’s largest training base and parts of the A1 in Yorkshire have been closed since 3am on Saturday.
Police found "a number of ageing detonators" during a search of the area and bomb disposal experts plan to carry out a controlled explosion.
The road, which is shut for six miles around Catterick Garrison, was due to reopen at 3pm but remains sealed off as police investigations continue but will be back in use "when it is safe to do so", police said.
There were no reports of any injuries and police said the closure was a "precautionary measure" while investigations are carried out.
