A Derry man has been told he has 24 hours to leave the city after being threatened at his home last night, the ‘Journal’ has learned.

It is believed a number of masked men called at the man’s house in the Bogside area of the city shortly before midnight on Thursday and told him he had to leave the city.

A PSNI spokesperson confirmed that police received a report about the incident.

“We do not discuss the security of any individual. However, if we receive information that a person’s life may be at risk we will inform the relevant persons accordingly. We never ignore anything which may put an individual at risk,” a spokesperson said.
