A man is due to appear in court charged with causing an explosion at a police station in Northern Ireland.

He is also accused of hijacking and false imprisonment, possession of a firearm and membership of a banned organisation.

It follows the dissident republican car bomb attack at Strand Road barracks in Londonderry in August last year.

The suspect, 22, will appear at Londonderry Magistrates' Court, police said.

During the incident on August 3 last year, a taxi was hijacked and packed with explosives. The driver was ordered at gunpoint to leave the car at Strand Road police station.
