Plans for a controversial housing scheme for alcoholics on the former site of a care home in Derry have been scrapped.

Oaklee Trinity Housing Association had planned to open a 24-bed unit for people with alcohol dependency on the Nazareth House site in Bishop Street.

However, there was angry reaction from residents who opposed the unit.
