Sinn Féin MLA Raymond McCartney has condemned an overnight arson attack on Derry Sinn Féin’s main constituency offices at Ráth Mór, Eastway Road.

It’s understood a rear window was broken and a flammable liquid poured into the office shortly before midnight. The scene was held overnight and enquiries are continuing this morning into the circumstances surrounding the fire.

Speaking after the constituency office was targeted in the attack, the Foyle MLA said;

“This must be condemned as an attempt to attack the democratic process. It will not stop us working or the people of Derry. It will be business as usual for Derry Sinn Féin, continuing to serve the people of the city an the wider north west.”

Anyone with information or who witnessed any suspicious activity in the area is asked to contact police on 101.
