There’s been a suspected overnight arson and paint attack on the Sinn Fein offices on the Andersonstown Road in west Belfast.

Damage was caused to a door at the rear of Connolly House, and to fascia boarding. Paint was also thrown at a front window of the building.

There was no damage reported to the interior.

Inspector McCullough has said the incident is being treated as arson.

“The fire was reported to us at around 4:50am. Police attended along with the Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service, who extinguished the blaze.

“This is being treated as arson and I am appealing to anyone who was in the area around this time and noticed any suspicious activity, or anyone who has information which could assist our investigation to contact us on the non emergency number 101,” he said.

Information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.
