A Londonderry family has been forced to flee their home after a concrete block was thrown through a window of the property.

The attack happened at around 2.30am on Tuesday in the Fergleen Park area of the city.

SDLP councillor for the area, Brian Tierney, condemned the incident.

“This was a thuggish and cowardly attack carried out under the cover of darkness designed to terrorise a people in our city," he said.

"The family have now been forced to leave their home out of fear for their safety. I have been working with them throughout today to secure alternative accomodation.

“I would appeal to anyone who saw or heard anything suspicious in the area this morning to come forward to police. Those responsible for this attack need to be caught and should face justice."

A PSNI spokesperson said they received a report of criminal damage caused to the house and are investigating.

They have appealed for anyone with any information regarding the incident to contact police on 101, quoting reference 494 13/8/19.

Information can also be provided anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
