Police in Derry are appealing for information after a 17-year-old youth was abducted in the city yesterday afternoon.

The teenager was travelling in a taxi in the Brandywell area when three men in a Volkswagen Passat blocked the path of the vehicle.

They then took him in their car in the direction of the Lecky Road. He was released unharmed at the River Foyle a short time later.
