Men abducted in Derry

Two men have escaped an alleged abduction attempt - when the car they were in crashed in Derry.

The men - aged 19 and 23 - claim they were in a house in the Circular Road area when four men - two armed with guns - entered just before 10.30 last night.

They said they were forced into a black Renault Megane and driven away.

The car later crashed near the Altnagelvin hospital and the men were able to get away.

They were treated in the hospital for injuries that were not life threatening.
