Sinn Féin MLA Raymond McCartney has condemned those responsible for an explosion in the Crawford Square area of Derry.
Mr McCartney said ;
“This attack has achieved nothing and must be condemned.
“Families had to be evacuated out of their homes late at night as a result of this incident.
“Thankfully no one was injured as a result of this reckless attack in a built-up residential area.
“This has brought nothing but disruption to the lives of local people and to the city generally with the closure Northland Road, one of the main arterial routes in the city.
“This is a city moving forward and the people have made it clear that they do not want these type of incidents.
“We will not allow a tiny minority to drag us back to the past. ”
