A family narrowly escaped injury after a firework attack on their home in County Fermanagh, the police have said.

A couple and their three young children fled from the house at Abbey Drive, Enniskillen, after part of the living room caught fire.

The police said a rock had been thrown through a front window and a firework, which had been taped to railings outside the house, was lit.

The flames and sparks caused the fire inside the house and set a family car parked outside ablaze.

The incident happened at about 0245 GMT on Saturday.

Police are appealing for anyone with information to contact them.
