Security Alert In Derry Last Night Was ‘Elaborate Hoax’

A security alert in Derry last night has turned out to be an ‘elaborate hoax’.

Significant disruption was caused after a suspicious object was found in the Celtic Court area.

SDLP Leader Colum Eastwood says elderly residents and children had their night turned upside down as police tried to make the area safe.

He says it’s particularly frustrating for local people and Derry City fans – who were welcoming President Higgins on a visit for the President’s Cup match.
