Lunn sickened by petrol bombings in Lisburn

December 16, 2010 9:48 AM

Lagan Valley Alliance MLA Trevor Lunn has condemned as thugs those involved in an incident that saw two petrol bombs thrown at a house in Lisburn. The incidents took place shortly before 4am this morning at a house in Finch Gardens in the city and three people were in the house at the time, including a 10-year-old and a 15-year-old.

Trevor Lunn MLA said: "People are sick of the type of individuals who are involved in this thuggery. They need to be taken off our streets, and anyone who can help police to catch those involved should contact them immediately. A petrol bomb is a lethal weapon, just as much as an explosive device, with the same capacity to cause death. Is that really what the perpetrators want, to kill children?

"Those who use fear and intimidation must never get their own way. People in Lisburn will be shocked and angry about this incident. They just want to get on with their everyday lives without having thugs causing trouble in their area."
