The northern Irish city of Derry was put on a security alert after a suspicious object was found in a car in the city late on Friday local time.

The alert was triggered after the police arrested two people in a suspicious car in the Northland Road area of the city at 20:00 BST.

British army bomb disposal experts were later called to the scene as the police cordoned off the nearby roads.

There has been so far no report of the police calling off the alert or having made the object safe.
