SHOCKING: Police at the scene of a shooting in the Creggan

Republican gangs have crippled 31 people in the past five years in punishment-style shootings in Derry city.

And that is not including dissident murders like that of journalist Lyra McKee, bomb and gun attacks on the PSNI, or assaults on civilians.

The frightening statistic - the highest recorded in any policing area in Northern Ireland - was revealed by Justice Minister Naomi Long in a response to an Assembly question by Sinn Fein Foyle MLA Karen Mullan.
