Alliance Party’s east Belfast office attacked again (BBC News Northern Ireland)

An Alliance Party office in east Belfast has been attacked for a second consecutive day.

Police said paint had been thrown at the building on the Upper Newtownards Road at about 04:00 BST on Thursday.

The remains of a petrol bomb were also discovered at the premises.

The office, which is used by East Belfast MP Naomi Long, suffered scorch damage when it was petrol-bombed on Wednesday.

Seven petrol bombs have been thrown at the office on that occasion. Scorch damage was caused to the building and windows were smashed, but no-one was injured.

The police recovered CCTV footage of the attack showing at least four people were involved.

The footage showed they were wearing hooded tops and began throwing stones and bricks at windows of the office just before 23:00 BST.

The office has been targeted a number of times since a vote on the flying of the union flag at Belfast City Hall in December 2012.
