Around 20 homes have been evacuated after a "suspicious object" was found in a park in Northern Ireland.
Police are on the scene at Earhart Park, in Londonderry, and have declared a security alert.
Part of the park has been closed and a number of homes evacuated.
A spokesman for the Police Service of Northern Ireland said "approximately 20 homes had been affected".
When asked what the object was, he said: "The suspicious object has to be examined so it is far too early to say."
