Family distressed after milk carton containing flammable liquid found under car

Aghagallon container under car

A family have been left distressed after a milk carton containing a highly flammable liquid was discovered under a car in Aghagallon.

Police have launched an investigation into the menacing act which occurred in the Lagan Gate area on Monday of this week.

It appears to also have a firelighter brick, attached with red electrical tape, to the container’s handle in what is clearly a crude homemade device.

SDLP Councillor, Ciaran Toman, said police “are taking all the necessary steps to find the culprits”.

“This is very upsetting for the family involved and no one should feel unsafe in their own home,” he added.

“This incident should not be ignored so if anyone has any information on this incident, please contact the PSNI on 101 or call crime stoppers on 0800 555 111.”
