A man arrested over the death of a six year old boy in Derry yesterday has been released on Bail. 

Don-a-ca Maguire was found injured in Tyrconnell Street yesterday morning - and later died from his injuries.

The boy was found in the small street off Lone Moor Road in the Bogside area at around 10am. 

Inspector O’Brien said: “While it is possible that Donnacadh’s injuries were sustained as the result of a collision with a vehicle, we are working to establish exactly what happened and we are keen to speak to witnesses.


"I would ask anyone who was on Tyrconnell Street this morning between 10am and 10.30am to please get in touch with officers in Strand Road or the Collision Investigation Unit by calling 101, quoting reference number 390 of 11/07/17."
