Cars and property target of Dunmurry attacks

By Chris Kilpatrick

A car was burnt out and a property attacked during early morning attacks in Dunmurry.

Police have appealed for information after the incident at Yew Tree Walk in the area on Saturday.

Shortly before 1:35am, it was reported that a blue Peugeot 107 had been set on fire.

A silver Vauxhall Astra parked nearby was also partially damaged.

A PSNI spokeswoman said: "Enquiries are continuing but at this stage police believe the fire was started deliberately.

"Police are also investigating a report that a window was damaged at a flat in the area, which may be linked to the incident of criminal damage of two vehicles parked in the area."

SDLP councillor Brian Heading condemned the attack.

"Those behind this cowardly action do not speak for the people of this area and they offer nothing positive to our community," he said.

"I have no doubt that the people of Dunmurry will stand in solidarity with their neighbours at this difficult time."

Officers in Lisburn Police Station can be contacted on the 101 non-emergency number.

If you prefer to provide information without giving your details you can contact the independent Crimestoppers charity anonymously on 0800 555 111.
