SDLP Councillor Shauna Cusack said it was lucky that no-one was seriously injured at the scene.

PSNI Inspector Moore said: “At around 5.50am, it was reported that a vehicle was overturned near the Hatmore shops.

“Police attended the scene and the vehicle has since been seized. Police are working to establish the owner of the vehicle and where it has come from.

“I would appeal to anyone who witnessed the incident or who saw anything suspicious at the Hatmore Area to contact police in Strand Road on 101, quoting reference number 257 or 03/07/19.

“Or, if someone would prefer to provide information without giving their details they can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers and speak to them anonymously on 0800 555 111 which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.”
