Police have this morning completed a second search of a stretch of the Madam’s Bank Road in Derry for suspicious objects.

Chief Inspector Andy Lemon, the area’s Operations Manager, said: “Based on a limited amount of information that an explosive device had been left in the area, we carried out searches last night with the assistance of an explosives dog and this again morning. In both cases, nothing was found.

“We would, though, continue to urge residents and motorists to be vigilant. If you notice anything suspicious please do not touch it, phone police immediately on 999.”
