Town arson attacks need to stop now, says Dickson
Alliance MLA Stewart Dickson has said a series of arson attacks in Larne need to stop before someone is killed.
The East Antrim MLA was speaking after a car was driven into a house in the Killyglen Road area of the town this afternoon. The vehicle was burnt out, with damage caused to the front of the house. It follows a number of incidents, including the arson of several cars last weekend and the driving of a car into a hairdressing salon. "This is believed to be the latest in a series of incidents which have taken place recently in Larne," said Mr Dickson. "They need to stop and stop now before someone is injured or killed. This situation cannot be allowed to increase any further and I appeal to everyone involved to help put an end to things. "If anyone has any information on this attack I would appeal to them to tell the police immediately."
