There has been significant disruption in Creggan tonight as a result of an ongoing security alert in the area, Sinn Féin MLA Karen Mullan has said.
“A security alert has been underway in part of Creggan estate from Monday morning.
“This has caused significant disruption in the area resulting in residents being forced to leave their homes and roads are closed.
“I have been on the ground with Councillor Tina Burke and local community workers to assist families with alternative accommodation.
“There have been disturbances in the area tonight.
“There is absolutely no justification for the actions which serve no purpose other than to put people at risk of serious harm and make the situation worse for local residents trying to get on with their lives and they should stop now.”
