Murdered: Lyra McKee

Police have conducted a series of searches in Londonderry in their investigation into the murder of Lyra McKee.

A number of items were seized during the Thursday morning raids.

No arrests were made and police said enquiries are continuing.

Lyra McKee (29) was killed as she observed rioting in Derry's Creggan estate last month.

The so-called new IRA claimed responsibility offering it's "full and sincere apologies" to family and friends of the reporter.

The killing prompted a call for Northern Ireland politicians to resolve their differences and restore power-sharing.

Two people have appeared in court in connection with the disturbances that took place on the night before Lyra's death.
