A house in Co Derry was targeted in an overnight petrol bomb attack.

The incident happened at Edenmore Park in Limavady shortly after 4.30am on Sunday. There were children sleeping in the property at the time.

It was reported to the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) that a number of windows had been smashed at the house and a petrol bomb left at the front door.

“There were children inside the property at the time the incident was reported to have taken place,” said the PSNI in a statement.

“Fortunately, no one was injured, however, the outcome could have been very different and resulted in a tragic set of circumstances.”

Damage was also reported to have been caused to the windscreen of the occupant’s car.

Police have appealed for witnesses.
