POLICE IN NORTHERN Ireland are appealing for information about a reported arson attack on an Orange Hall in west Belfast during the early hours of this morning.

It is believed that a plastic container was placed against an external metal door of the property on the Springfield Road before it was set alight.

The door was damaged as a result. The blaze also caused smoke damage inside the building, according to PSNI detectives.

Anyone with information is asked to contact CID at Musgrave or the Crimestoppers line.

As Northern Ireland prepares for the traditionally tense parades’ seasons, residents have been asked to make positive choices for a peaceful summer.
