Former Mayor of Derry Councillor Kevin Campbell said
“I am pleased that the Peace Flame in the Foyle Street park has been restored following a number of vandalism attacks.
“The Bright Brand New Day initiative led by Rev David Latimer was one of the highlights of my year as Mayor. Listening to the speech by Martin Luther King III and the launch of the Flame I thought was a very proud day for our city.
“I hope that the Flame will now be left alone and will not be subject to any vandalism attacks.
