FOUR MEN HAVE been arrested after violence erupted in Derry following the annual Apprentice Boys’ Parade.

Petrol bombs were thrown at police officers in the Butcher Gate Area, while more were seized in the Fahan Road area, where a car was also set alight.

The PSNI issued warnings to motorists yesterday evening that hijackings were taking place. In one incident a mother and her daughter were pulled from their car in the Creggan Road area.

A pipe bomb was thrown at police, but there were no injuries.

BBC reports that 140 bands marched through Derry city centre, and that incidents of violence were reported throughout the day.
