TWO boys aged 15 and 16 arrested after a police car was rammed in Co Derry have been released on bail.

Police said at around 8pm on Friday, a suspected stolen car failed to stop for officers when signalled to do so on Broad Road in Limavady.

"A short time later police observed the car on Main Street. The car rammed the police car in an attempt to make off."

One officer suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Police said one arrest was made at the scene but two young males who were in the car made off on foot in the direction of Connell Street.

"During follow-up enquiries police arrested a male in Derry/Londonderry. The car, a Vauxhall Zafira, is believed to have been stolen in Derry/Londonderry earlier in the evening."

The two boys, who were arrested on suspicion of a number of motoring offences, were later released on police bail pending further inquiries.
