Three overnight security alerts in the Gobnascale area of Derry have been declared “elaborate hoaxes.”

Police and British Army bomb disposal experts attended a report of a suspicious object at the Mimosa Court area at around 00:55am, followed by a report of a suspicious object at the Strabane Old Road area shortly after 1:15am.

Police were later called to a report of a suspicious object at business premises at the Strabane Old Road area shortly before 1:50am.

Residents who were evacuated during the alerts have now been allowed to return to their homes. All roads have now been reopened.
