In a statement the group said it had been "inundated with complaints over the past number of weeks and have proactively worked to resolve this situation."

It said it had "undertaken a decision to actively patrol the areas surrounding Creggan shops, Central Drive, Rinmore Drive, Cromore Gardens and Creggan Heights".

Two weeks ago Saoradh called for vigilance from parents after fireworks were reportedly aimed at pedestrians, motorists and local shops in Creggan.
