Carrickfergus: Petrol bomb thrown at police car

A petrol bomb has been thrown at a police car in Carrickfergus, County Antrim.

It was thrown while police were attending a road traffic accident in Castlemara Drive at about 01:05 BST on Sunday.

Insp Mick Wood said although no injuries or damage was caused, the attack had to be condemned.

"A police officer should never come under attack while simply doing their job," he said.

"The police service belongs to the whole community and police officers are there to serve and protect the whole community."

He appealed for anyone with information to contact police.
