There has been an arson attack at a new housing development in Londonderry.

Vandals broke into the site on the former Rosemount barracks and destroyed a mechanical digger and other machinery.

Sinn Fein councillor Maeve McLaughlin has been speaking to the contractors who said the repair bill would come to at least £30,000.

She said the attack was "unrepresentative of the local community".
