A family of five, including a five year old child, have escaped injury in an arson attack in their Lurgan home.

Two teenage boys, their 42-year-old mother and the children’s 61-year-old grandfather were also in the house.

A bag of rubbish was set against the door of their home at Spelga Park at about 4am on Saturday.

The fire brigade were called and officers led them to safety.

No-one was injured in the attack. A door was damaged and there was smoke damage to the inside of the house.

Police have appealed for anyone with information to come forward.
