Disabled man's petrol bomb ordeal

A petrol bomb attack on the home of a disabled man could have had fatal consequences, it has been claimed.

The attack happened at the house just outside Ballymoney, Co Antrim, on Wednesday night.

A window of the house at Conagher Road, near the village of Dervock, was damaged and there was scorch damage caused to the front of the property.

The family who live in the house - including a man who is wheelchair-bound - were at home at the time. No-one was injured.

Renovation work was recently carried out to make the house more accessible for the disabled man.

Steven Phillips, a community worker and Ulster Unionist Party member, said: "This is a house of a disabled man. Should the petrol bomb have ignited we could have been looking at a murder scene."
