McCarthy disgusted by fourth attack on family in Newtownards

Alliance Strangford MLA Kieran McCarthy has expressed his disgust after a family was attacked for the fourth time. Flammable liquid was poured through the letter box of the house in Lenamore Park, Newtownards on Saturday night and set alight, but it was quickly put out. It is believed the attacks are sectarian in nature.

Kieran McCarthy MLA said: “I am disgusted that this family has been targeted for the fourth time. I cannot comprehend why somebody would want to target a family in this way.

“My thoughts go out to the family at what must be a difficult time for them.

“I am just thankfully that this fire was put out quickly, otherwise lives may have been lost.

“If anybody knows any information about these attacks then I would urge them to contact the Police. The Police need to urgently apprehend the people responsible for these attacks.”
