Two men have been charged in connection with riots in Derry last month.

Violence broke out in the Creggan area of the town on Thursday April 18th.

Journalist Lyra McKee was killed during the rioting.

Earlier this week, police in the North investigating Lyra's death arrested four people.

Two male teenagers - aged 15 and 18 - have since been released without charge.

The PSNI says two men have now been charged in relation to the violent disorder in Derry.

A 51-year-old has been charged with riot, petrol bomb offences and arson of a hijacked vehicle.

A 38-year-old has been charged with riot, petrol bomb offences and the arson and hijacking of a tipper truck.

Both men are due to appear in court in Derry tomorrow.
