A 42-year-old man arrested in Londonderry over the attempted murder of police officers has been released unconditionally.

Six shots were fired at officers on 11 July 2018 from what is believed to have been an automatic weapon.

The PSNI said the man was arrested in Derry on Monday.

He was also questioned in connection with a seizure of fireworks in the Chamberlain Street area of the city in October last year.

A report will be forwarded to the Public Prosecution Service in relation to the fireworks offences, police said.
