Former deputy mayor of Derry targeted in an arson attack
His son is a Catholic police officer.

LIAM BRADLEY, the former deputy mayor of Derry – whose son has become a police officer – was targeted in an arson attack last night.

A petrol bomb was thrown at a car parked outside his home, the Guardian reports.

The silver Mazda was parked in the driveway of the Lone Moor Road property when the bomb was thrown through the rear driver side window at 9.30pm yesterday.

Sinn Fein councillor Colin Kelly said those reponsible would be seen as cowards for targeting pensioners, the BBC adds.
