Police say the security operation in Ardnalee , Culmore, has now ended.

Residents are being informed and Foyle PSNI have thanked the community for their patience and understanding during the incident.

The alert was sparked when a bomb planted by “violent dissident republicans” was suspected to have fallen off a policeman’s vehicle.

No one was injured when the device detonated as Army bomb experts moved in yesterday (Wednesday) afternoon.
