Roads around Ballykinler have been closed including the Tullymurry Straight which runs from Downpatrick to Clough.
Vehicle check-points have been set up in the area and motorists are asked to take alternative routes. Ballykinler is the site of a large British Army base. Last month, a car bomb found in Castlewellan was said to have been destined for the base.
