PSNI officers came under attack in Derry last night while trying to break up sectarian clashes between rival gangs of youths in the Waterside area of the city.

Around 30 people were involved in the trouble, which saw stones thrown at police as they tried to keep the two sides apart.

One man was arrested, but there were no reports of any major injuries.
