Northern Ireland police have slammed a "senseless" arson attack at a charity shop.

The attack happened at the Hospice Shop in Antrim town's Castle Mall on Thursday evening.

Police said they suspected someone left bags of clothing for donation outside the premises, which were later set alight.

A PSNI spokesperson said: "This has caused considerable damage to the shop and will undoubtedly affect the services and support that the charity shop provides.

"I would ask anyone who considers these actions appropriate to reconsider and think about the consequences of senseless acts like this."

Anyone with any information regarding the attack has been urged to contact police on 101 quoting reference 1347 of 21/03/2019.
