It happened in the Racecourse Park area at around 6.30pm.

Local Councillor, Sharon Duffy told Q Radio it's lucky no-one was hurt.

She said: "We had children out all over the citry dressed up, knocking on doors, getting sweets, there was a great atmosphere.

"Everybody was in great form and there is no way this reflects this community."
