A PIPE BOMB has exploded outside a house in north Belfast.

It’s believed the device was thrown at a property in Sheridan Street in the New Lodge area overnight. The incident was not reported to police until 9.45am today.

The occupants who were at home at the time were not injured, but a window frame was damaged.

A number of nearby homes have been evacuated while the remnants of the device are being made safe and recovered for examination.

The PSNI has appealed for anyone with information to contact detectives from Reactive & Organised Crime at Musgrave Police Station by calling 101.
