The news comes after two security alerts in the city that take place on Monday.

Army technical officers have carried out a controlled explosion on an airplane abducted by Londonderry's Circular Road.

The second security warning is less than a mile from Southway after the Royal Mail van was kidnapped and abandoned.

It comes after Deria's court house bomb attack on Saturday evening.

Just before noon At 13.45, the police received a report in which four masked men had brought a delivery driver's vehicle and one of them was a weapon.

Two passengers in the van were ordered to drive on and leave the Lonemoor road.

The police had cleared the area due to an early warning at midday on Monday.

PSNI Superintendent Gordon McCalmont said police are working to work in this area safely.

"Unfortunately, for two hours nowadays, we are dealing with another safety alert in the city, which means even more disruption to the local community," he said.

"I know this second security alarm, and the steps we take to ensure human security will cause considerable inconvenience to the local community, but we have no choice.

"I want to ask the public about their patience and thank them for their collaboration while we work to make the scene safe."

Earlier, White Transit van was reportedly kidnapped by three masked men who thrown the item at its back before giving up Deria Creggan's possession.

Several homes have been evacuated.

SDLP Foyle MLA Mark H Durkan said he was told that the driver was asked to pick up a van with a pack in the city center.

Mr Durkan said the driver then left the van in a circular road area.

"This incident is another major disruption to the inhabitants of the Creggan area, in addition to the interruptions and dangers that were created in the city center over the weekend," he said.

"The only people who suffer here are the locals. These attacks are so illogical that they are unacceptable."

The latest events are followed by an explosion outside Bishop Street on Saturday in London.

The delivery manager was kidnapped and bombed in the car. Nothing was hurt in the explosion.

The police have blamed the attack on the New IRA.

Five people were arrested for this incident.
