Councillor says dissidents have no regard for Derry people

SDLP Northlands councillor Mark H Durkan has said a third incident in as many days in the city shows the complete disregard dissidents have for the people of Derry.

Mr Durkan labelled the latest -a controlled explosion on a suspicious van parked outside the courthouse at Bishop Street- as ‘sinister’.

Mr Durkan said a number of homes evacuated because of this latest mindless incident, with quite a large area cordoned off.

This also comes shortly after a suspicious device was found on the Craigavon Bridge on Friday and a warning sent to businesses and schools by the 32 County Sovereignty Movement.
