A man in his 20s has been left badly shaken after what is believed to have been a pipe bomb exploded outside his home in north Belfast.

Damage was caused to the door of the house in Carlisle Square. The attack happened at about 22:50 BST on Thursday.

It is the second time the house has been targeted. Police said there was a similar incident last August.

The attack is not being treated as a hate crime.

Neighbours said on Friday they heard a loud bang, and a resident two streets away in Victoria Parade said the explosion rattled his windows.

Police have not yet established a motive for the attack and have appealed for information.
