Bloody Sunday memorial damaged

A Bloody Sunday memorial in Derry has been vandalised.

The top of the sculpture at the Gasyard in the Bogside was knocked off over the weekend.

Last week, Lord Mark Saville published a report which found the 14 people shot dead by Paratroopers in 1972 innocent.

SDLP MLA Pat Bradley condemned those responsible for the damage.
