Youths smash car window in Derry snowball attack

A Londonderry care worker has had her car window smashed after youths attacked her vehicle with snowballs.

The incident happened on Monday evening on the Lecky Road in the Bogside.

Sinn Fein councillor Kevin Campbell said another care worker had also had her car attacked with snowballs in Hazelbank.

"These snowballs, they're crushing them down like ice and it's like stoning a car."

"These care workers provide a vital service for our community and here we have a care worker who now has to get her car fixed and is obviously badly shaken.

"The whole community has a responsibility to explain to these people that this is totally and utterly wrong."
