Police are investigating three arson attacks after three homes were damaged over the weekend.

Two men are due to appear in court today in relation to a petrol bombing of a home in Cullybackey, Co Antrim. The pair, aged 46 and 32, have been charged with arson, criminal damage and possession of a petrol bomb.

Meanwhile, a 16-year-old boy has been arrested and questioned after a vacant house was set on fire in Craigavon. The home, in the Drumgor Heights area, was extensively damaged during the blaze early on Saturday morning.

A third house was also damaged after arsonists set a tyre on fire beside an oil tank in Carnlough. The attack happened in the Galdanagh Road area on Friday at around 11.30pm.

There was no-one inside at the time.
