At least three people have been arrested – and a number of petrol bombs seized by police – following rioting in Derry after the annual Apprentice Boys parade in the city.
A mother and daugther were pulled from their car by a gang near Creggan Street,  while a car was set alight in Fahan Street and a van was hijacked on Lecky Road.
Petrol bombs were thrown at police at the Apprentice Boys Memorial Hall, while police were also targeted with a pipe bomb at Free Derry Corner in the hours after the parade.
The violence has been widely condemned.
More than 10,000 Apprentice Boys and 140 bands had taken part in the parade, which passed off without incident.
