Pipe bombers target Newtownabbey home

A family were forced to flee their Newtownabbey home yesterday after it was targeted by pipe bombers just yards from where a man was shot and wounded last week.

It is understood the PSNI raised the alarm around 2am after a call was made to a local business warning a pipe bomb had been thrown at the house on Mayfield Road.

Ten nearby homes were also evacuated.
