Police are investigating a petrol bomb attack at a house on the outskirts of west Belfast.

Two devices were thrown at a property in the Cloona Manor area of Dunmurry during the early hours of this morning.

No one was hurt in the attack.

Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) chief inspector John Wilson said: “Shortly before 00:45am, it was reported to police that a front window of a house in the area was smashed and a petrol bomb was thrown at the front door of the property.

“Minor damage was caused to the front door and no one is believed to have been in the property at the time of the incident.
