Police investigating the bomb attack at the Waterfoot hotel in Londonderry last month have returned to the scene to gather additional information.

A device was found at the hotel on October 9 in advance of a planned PSNI recruitment event.

Detectives were in the area last night and spoke to passing motorists and pedestrians.

Detective Superintendent Karen Baxter from Serious Crime Branch appealed to anyone with information about the device or who noticed suspicious activity in the area in the days leading up to its discovery on October 9 to contact detectives at Mahon Road on the non-emergency number 101 Ext. 37423 or call the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
