Derry's Richmond Shopping Centre has been sold for up to £24m, it has been confirmed.

Based in the centre of the city, the Richmond Centre was bought by the property asset division of the Royal Bank of Scotland, West Register.

The Richmond Centre was initially put on the market at £26m and this is the first sale of a major shopping centre in Northern Ireland for several years.
