Detectives leading the hunt for to find those who planted a bomb at a Derry hotel last month have returned to the scene.

The PSNI said officers had been dispatched to the scene of the security alert at Waterfoot Hotel again “to gather additional information”.

A device was found at the Derry hotel, located near the eastern end of the Foyle Bridge, on October 9, in advance of a planned PSNI recruitment event.

The event was subsequently cancelled and due to safety concerns for staff and guests was relocated to St Columb’s Park House shortly afterwards.

Detectives last night spoke to passing motorists and pedestrians in relation to the bomb attack.

Detective Superintendent Karen Baxter from Serious Crime Branch has appealed to anyone with information about the device or who noticed suspicious activity in the area in the days leading up to its discovery on 9 October to contact detectives at Mahon Road on the non-emergency number 101 Ext. 37423 or call the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
