Man charged after Derry alert

A 23-year-old man has been charged with obstructing police after a bomb alert in Londonderry.

Twenty homes were evacuated around the Ringfort Road when a suspect object was thrown at a house at about 0515 BST on Thursday.

It was later declared a hoax and residents were allowed to return to their homes.

Another man arrested at the scene is helping police with their inquiries.
