Police say a European Investigation Order was “carefully considered, sought and granted by Belfast Crown Court and the search was later approved and supported by senior members of the French judiciary”.

A number of items were recovered for further examination.

Lyra McKee (29) was shot dead by dissident republicans as she observed rioting in Derry’s Creggan Estate in 2019.
