The PSNI has announced its cancelled recruitment event in Londonderry will now be held at St Columb's Park House in the city on Saturday.

The Waterfoot Hotel in Derry cancelled the recruitment event over "health and safety concerns" yesterday.

It followed after a bomb was left in the hotel at the weekend which forced the original event to be delayed.

Owner Garvan O'Doherty told the Belfast Telegraph the realisation that the device was viable left him with no choice.

Police said they were determined to stage the event and that there was a demand from the public for a career in the PSNI.

It was revealed that over 2,700 have so far applied for one of at least 100 positions available.
