Dramatic CCTV footage shows moment vehicle bomb exploded in Londonderry

Car bomb explodes in Londonderry as police warn people to stay away from area

The group is believed to have been responsible for a number of attacks since its formation, including the murders of prison officers David Black and Adrian Ismay.

The PSNI said the attack may have been carried out by the New IRA, a dissident republican group.

"Fortunately it didn't kill anybody and fortunately it didn't cause widespread damage, but clearly it was a very significant attempt to kill people in the local community".

"We are now putting in place cordons in the area, and we anticipate significant disruption to the local community while we work to the make the scene safe".

Londonderry was a consistent flashpoint in the three decades of sectarian bloodshed in Northern Ireland known as the Troubles.

Although the IRA agreed to end its attacks against Britain in the 1998 Good Friday peace accord, splinter paramilitary groups are still active.

But dissident paramilitaries remain active on both sides of the divide. "I knew right away this was a bomb", he said.

He tweeted: "Those responsible have nothing to offer".

"I felt and heard the explosion from Creggan Road, about a 10-minute walk away", she said.

Currently, the police are working at the site of the emergency in Northern Ireland's city of Derry.

Forensic officers inspect the remains of the van used as a auto bomb on an attack outside Derry Court House on January 20. The nationalist fight was spearheaded by the Irish Republican Army (IRA). "The device detonated at 8.10pm", he said.

A Royal Mail postal van was hijacked nearby later on Monday by four masked men, one of whom was reported to have a gun, police said.

"In the intervening minutes we had already found the auto and were starting to evacuate the area", said ACC Hamilton.

A pizza delivery van was hijacked by two armed men in Derry at about 18:00 GMT (7am NZT).

Hamilton said he thought the attack marked a continuation of militants' campaigns, rather than an escalation.

Coveney, also Ireland's deputy prime minister, tweeted: "I utterly condemn the auto bomb terrorist attack in Derry this evening".

In recent years, the two main political parties - the Democratic Unionist Party and Sinn Fein - had worked together in a power-sharing executive, but it collapsed in 2017 and despite extensive talks has yet to be restored.

"I think it's important that there aren't any decisions that ultimately lead to a hard border between Northern Ireland and Ireland because, as we have seen at the weekend, nerves are shattered there as well", he said.

He said the device "has not been as effective as they would have wanted for it to be".

Speaking after the latest security alerts DUP leader Arlene Foster said: "The PSNI needs our full support to remove those responsible from our streets".
