Police have charged a man with arson endangering life with intent after a burning car was abandoned outside a house in Larne, County Antrim.

The house was badly damaged in the attack at Killyglen Road on Sunday.

The man, who is 34, has also been charged with making threats to kill, intimidation and wasting police time by making a false report.

He is expected to appear before Antrim Magistrates' Court on Tuesday.

Paramedics were called to the scene after the stolen silver Peugeot was set on fire outside the house at about 16:45 BST on Sunday, but no-one was taken to hospital.

Two other men, aged 23 and 32, who were also arrested after the attack have been released on police bail pending further inquiries.
