Teenagers' car 'hijacked by gunmen' on Derry's Strand Road

Two men, believed to have been armed with a gun and a knife, have threatened three teenagers during a hijacking in Londonderry.

The teenagers - two men and a woman all aged 19 - were sitting in a parked car on Strand Road at about 02:50 BST when a vehicle pulled up beside them.

The armed men forced the teenagers out of their red Volkswagen Golf before stealing their car and driving off in the direction of Culmore Road.

Police have appealed for witnesses.

The teenagers were not injured in the hijacking.
