Police have sealed off the area and a specialist team is investigating.

The belt was found near where chief suspect, Salah Abdeslam, was traced to on the night of the attacks.
It’s understood his mobile phone was detected in the 18th district in the north of Paris and then later in Chatillon in the south.
An international warrant has been issued for the 26-year-old’s arrest and French police have warned that the French national is an “especially dangerous individual”.
