MP for Foyle Colum Eastwood has condemned the shooting of a man and the setting on fire of a car in Creggan tonight. 

Colum Eastwood said: “Tonight’s shooting and disturbances in Creggan are senseless acts designed to intimidate, threaten and terrorize our community.”

“The people of Creggan and Derry do not want this mindless violence. Actions like these do not belong in Derry in 2021.

“My thoughts are with the man who has been shot and I wish him a speedy recovery. "
