Vandals who broke into a Londonderry church have smashed windows and damaged an organ reputed to be one of the most beautiful in Ireland.

The break-in at Christ Church on Infirmary Road was discovered late on Tuesday.

Police have yet to establish a motive for the attack, which the Bishop of Derry and Raphoe, the Right Rev Ken Good, has described as "sacrilege".
