O’Lynn condemns attack in town

Alliance Ballymena Councillor Patricia O’Lynn has condemned those behind an arson attack on a flat in the town.

The incident took place in the Drumtara area in the early hours of yesterday (Monday). Around 12:05am, the property was set alight. One man was inside at the time but was not injured.

“It is extremely concerning this flat was attacked in this way, particularly given there was a man inside at the time,” said Councillor O’Lynn.

“Thankfully, he escaped without injury. I condemn utterly those behind this attack, which could have easily seen someone injured or even killed.

“I urge anyone with information on this incident to contact police about it immediately.”
