The driver of a pizza van and a woman passenger were left shocked after it was hijacked in Londonderry on Wednesday evening.

Three masked men stopped the van at Glenowen Park at about 23:30 BST.

Police said they threatened the driver and he and his passenger got out.

The men then drove off in the van which was later found burned out at Central Drive, Creggan, Derry. No-one was hurt but the two people in the van were "very shaken," police said.

Police have appealed for information.
