A man arrested by detectives investigating the murder of Lyra McKee has been released without charge.

The 46-year-old man was arrested on Thursday under the UK's Terrorism Act by detectives from PSNI's Major Investigation Team.

Detectives made the arrest after carrying out searches in the Northland Road and Creggan areas of Derry city.

Ms McKee was shot dead during rioting in Creggan in April.

Police said the 29-year-old journalist was wounded after a single gunman opened fire in the housing estate.

She was taken to hospital but died a short time later.

A group claiming to be the 'New IRA' has since claimed responsibility.
