Man charged over attempted murder of Derry police officers

A man has been charged with attempting to murder police officers in Londonderry.

The 24-year-old has been charged with 31 offences and is expected to appear before Londonderry Magistrates' Court on Saturday morning.

The charges are in connection with the arrest of a man following a two vehicle crash on the Caw roundabout on Friday, February 5 just before 12.30pm.

Police said a grey Skoda Superb had been stolen in a creeper burglary in the Lindenwood Park area in the early hours of the morning.

This car was later spotted by police just after midnight.

A police pursuit was in place when the stolen car was involved in a collision with another car.

It is not believed that anyone was seriously injured in this collision, however two police officers who were on foot were injured in their attempts to get out of the way when the stolen car drove at them.

Another officer was injured when making the arrest.
