BBC

There has been a petrol bomb attack in east Belfast.

Shortly after midnight a Vauxhall Vectra car was set alight outside a house in Glen Lea Park in the Garnerville area.

The car was destoyed and damage was caused to the front door and the window of the house. A woman and children who were in the house escaped unhurt.

Police have appealed for anyone who witnessed the incident to get in contact with them.

Ulster Unionist councillor Jim Rodgers said he hoped it was not the start of more violence in the area.

"This family clearly had a fortunate escape and and those responsible must be hunted down," he said.
