There has been a police raid at a home in the Lislane Drive area of Creggan today according to local Cllr Gary Donnelly.

Independent Councillor Gary Donnelly hit out at what he has described as a 'intimidation campaign' by the PSNI 'against Republicans' in the Creggan area.

"There's been a heavy presence of PSNI in the Creggan area since Christmas," said Cllr Donnelly.

"They have this area flooded and there have been a large number of stop and searches.

"Searches are happening up here two to three times a day."

Cllr Donnelly said that Creggan residents were unhappy with the situation.

"There was a home raided today in Lislane Drive by heavily armed police officers, there have been a number of house raids here recently including one in the Ballymagowan area last week."

Nobody was available from the PSNI to comment at this time.
