A family, including a young child, have escaped injury in a petrol bomb attack in west Belfast.

It is the second time the house has been targeted in a week.

A bottle filled with flammable liquid was thrown through an upstairs window of a house at Teeling View, Lagmore, in the early hours of yesterday morning.

Some scorch damage was caused to the house. Police are investigating a motive.

Lagan Valley Alliance MLA Trevor Lunn said it was an “appalling attack”.
