Due to the ongoing security alert at Southway, a number of cordons are in place and traffic movement will be affected, the PSNI have said.

The alert between Creggan and the Bogside began after police received a report earlier this afternoon of a suspicious object.

A number of residents have been moved from homes overlooking Southway. A respite centre has been opened at Long Tower Youth Club for those displaced.
