DUP MLA says man's family is 'devastated' by arson attack

A "vulnerable" young man's home has been targeted in what police have described as a "sickening" arson attack in Banbridge in County Down.

The incident happened at about 05:30 GMT on Sunday at Hillview Terrace in Dromore Street.

Police said the man, who has severe learning difficulties, was woken by the sound of his bedroom window smashing. A petrol bomb was then thrown at the hole in the broken window.

DUP MLA Carla Lockhart says the man's family are "devastated".
