Sinn Féin Councillor Paul Fleming commenting on the news that a suspect device was left at the Everglades Hotel in the Waterside area of Derry tonight.
“This must have been a very frightening experience for staff, guests and local residents caught up in this incident.
“It serves no purpose and those responsible need to come forward and explain to the people of Derry what the point of all this is.
“I would call upon anyone involved in this type of activity to desist; they have no strategy and are going against the will of the vast majority of the people of this city who have indicated that they want to move forward without these type of actions.
The people of Derry do not want this happening in their name.
