The PSNI has arrested a man in Derry in connection with dissident republican activity.

The 48-year-old was detained by Detectives from the Serious Crime Brach this morning.

A number of searches are ongoing in the Derry area today.

It's amid heightened security following a bomb blast last week which seriously injured a prison officer.
