Sinn Féin MLA Raymond McCartney has condemned a gun attack on a PSNI vehicle in Derry. 

Speaking after shots were fired at PSNI vehicle on Westland Street in the Bogside area of the city in the early hours of Tuesday morning, the Foyle MLA said; 

"This gun attack in a built up area such as the Bogside was totally reckless. 

"Westland Street is a busy thoroughfare and this attack put the lives of many people at risk. 

"Thankfully no one was injured in this incident but we could have been faced with a tragedy 

"Those behind this attack have nothing to offer society and are not representative of the people of Derry. 

"They need to immediately desist from these futile actions.
