Suspected joyriders have been blamed for flipping a car onto it's roof in Derry Londonderry. 

The silver vehicle was found blocking a 'back road' near Glenowen Park yesterday evening. 

People in the area say those inside the vehicle got out and ran off, but it's unclear if any of them were injured.

Councillor Kevin Campbell warned people to avoid the road as it was blocked by the vehicle, causing significant danger to others. 

The road where the car was found is often used as a link to the nearby Creggan estate, or to travel to the border with the Republic of Ireland. 

The road has had a number of crashes in recent months with suspected 'death drivers' being blamed. 

One section of an old stone wall has been replaced with a steel enforced barrier in recent months. 

Derry City and Strabane District council has been asked to look at other measures near the Hollyhall road to slow traffic and improve safety.
