Children as young as 12 involved in Londonderry disorder, PSNI say


Police in Northern Ireland say children as young as 12 were involved in another night of violence, as officers were attacked with petrol bombs in several predominantly Unionist estates in Londonderry last night.

Officers were also attacked in loyalist areas of Newtownabbey and Carrickfergus – in scenes which the force described as “totally unacceptable”.

Thirty three police officers have been hurt in the disorder.
