Sinn Féin Councillor Patricia Logue has called for calm in the Bogside tonight as police deal with the sudden death of a local person in the area.
Patricia Logue said:
“Police are dealing with a tragic incident involving the sudden death of a local person in the Bogside tonight.
“A number of youths are currently causing disruption and anti-social behaviour in the surrounding area. This is only adding to the grief and shock felt by residents in the Bogside tonight.
“I would make a call for calm and appeal to parents to make it their business to ensure their children are not getting caught up in this type of activity.
“Even during the worst days of the conflict people in the community always let the police go about their job of investigation during incidents such as this.” CRÍOCH/ENDS
