Sinn Féin MLA Raymond McCartney has condemned those behind the ongoing security alert in Londonderry.

Mr McCartney said: “I utterly condemn those behind this security alert close to Strand Road PSNI station.

“The owner of the vehicle which was hijacked must have had a traumatic experience.

“This has brought nothing but disruption to a main arterial route and in doing so they have shown total disregard for the people of this city.

“Derry is a city moving forward and those behind these incidents do not speak for the people.

“They need to call an end to these futile actions once and for all.”
