Stewart Dickson MLA said: “There can be no justification for this attack. No ifs, no buts.
“Lives could have been lost in this attack. I would like to praise the efforts of our hard working police officers who came across this fire and ensured that Willie was able to escape without serious injury.
“If anybody has any information about this attack then I would urge them to contact the police. Those responsible obviously have no regard for the consequences of their actions.”
