Residents in Loyalist Fountain Estate in Derry say they feel vulnerable & frightened after a 4ft hole was smashed through an interface wall.

And then on Tuesday, it's reported that there was a "loud bang". No one knows what exactly happened. It was already dark, around 5 pm, when the explosion was heard. So the police are going to wait for a while until they can do a full search under a day light.

@beattie41 It seems like there's been something, but as usual twitter and FB are ahead of the official news broadcasts.
