Two cars destroyed in arson attack

By David Young

Two cars have been destroyed in an attack in a Co Antrim village.

Police are investigating the torching of a red Volkswagen Golf and a Citroen DS in Ballybogey, near Coleraine.

Officers received reports shortly before 11pm on Thursday of a car on fire in the Millview Park Court area.

It is believed the red Golf was set alight, then caused damage to the nearby Citroen vehicle.

Northern Ireland Fire & Rescue Service personnel arrived at the scene and managed to put out the blaze before it could spread to neighbouring homes.

"Enquiries are ongoing at this time," the police said last night.

A PSNI spokesman also appealed for anyone with information about the incident to contact them urgently.
