Three teenagers have been charged in connection to recent attacks on Derry’s Apprentice Boys Memorial Hall.

Police say the teenagers - all aged 15 - have been arrested and charged with criminal damage offences between July 23 and 26.

Chief Inspector Jon Burrows, Foyle Area Commander said “ I would appeal to parents to make sure they know where their children are and what they are doing.

“Parents need to talk to children about the possible consequences if they are found committing any offence as it could result in them having a life impacting criminal record.

“Anyone witnessing incidents of criminal damage should report it to police immediately at Strand Road on 0845 600 8000. Information can also be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”

The teenagers are due to appear in the city’s Youth Court on August 20
