Suspected car bomb explodes in Derry

There have been reports that a car bomb has exploded on Bishop Street in Derry.

The Police Service of Northern Ireland has tweeted a photograph of an explosion from its PSNI DC&S District account warning people to stay away from the street.

Foyle Sinn Fein MP Elisha McCallion condemned the blast.

She said: “This incident has shocked the local community.

“In particular, there are many elderly residents who live in the area who have been alarmed by this.

“Thankfully no-one appears to have been injured.

“Derry is a city moving forward and no-one wants this type of incident. It is not representative of the city.

“I would encourage anyone with information about this incident to bring it to the police.”
