Saoradh confirmed on its Facebook page that Junior McDaid House and the homes of three Saoradh activists were being raided by police, adding that "two activists" had been detained.

Detective Chief Inspector Stuart Griffin said: "This morning we searched five properties in the city in connection with an ongoing investigation into the illegal use of a lottery in the Londonderry area and seized a sum of money and other items in connection with lottery activity.
