More violent scenes in Derry

 

There have been more violent scenes in Northern Ireland, despite police appealing for calm.

A car was set on fire in the Waterside area of Derry while there are also reports of unrest in Carrickfergus, near Belfast.

It follows a turbulent week there, as loyalist tensions have simmered over into violence.

32 police have been injured during the Easter weekend.

Meanwhile the security alert in the Templemore Road area of Derry ended last night.

Police and ATO examined a suspicious object, which was discovered in the area at around 4.20 pm yesterday afternoon, and have since declared it an elaborate hoax.

The object has been taken away for further examination and officers would ask anyone who noticed any suspicious activity in the area, or anyone with any information about this incident, to contact them at Strand Road on 101.
