A security alert in Londonderry has ended.

It followed the discovery of a suspicious object in Crannog Park in the Strathfoyle area of the city.

Army bomb experts were called to examine the object, but later declared it a hoax.

A number of residents in Crannog Park had to leave their homes but have now been allowed to return.
