The PSNI and members of the public have come under attack by a violent republican mob in the Lecky Road area of Londonderry.
The attack came close to the site of a republican bonfire due to be held in the area tonight.
Petrol bombs, bottles and bricks were thrown during the republican rioting.
Over 2,000 people attended the pro-terror event last year and yesterday masked republicans were photographed menacingly prowling the area.
Since you’re here…
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading the Unionist Voice than ever but unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can.
The Unionist Voice is editorially independent, meaning we set our own agenda. Our journalism is free from commercial bias. No one edits our Editor. No one steers our opinion. This is important because it enables us to give a voice to the voiceless, challenge the powerful and hold them to account. It’s what makes us different to so many others in the media, at a time when factual, honest reporting is critical.
f everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support the Unionist Voice– and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
