Hijackers drag pensioner from van in Creggan in Derry

A 76-year-old man has been dragged out of his van by hijackers in Derry.

The man and a young woman was driving on Inishcarn Road in Creggan at about 9 o clock last night when a number of youths forced him to stop.

The van was later found on fire at Fanad Drive.

Deputy Mayor, Kevin Campbell, said the incident was disgraceful.

And he says those responsible are carrying out these hijackings in an attempt to get the PSNI into the Creggan.......
