Two cars and parts of a house have been left damaged following reports of a 'loud bang' in Cushendall. 

It happened shortly after 11pm last night in the Mill Street area of the village, which remains closed off this morning. 

Police say a door, it's frame and a wall of the property were effected. 

They're working to establish what happened, but local councillor Oliver McMullan believes it was a deliberate explosion.

" Tonight's attack. I must condemn it, because it was the wrong thing to do" he said.

"I would be calling on the Police to make a full report on this, not only on the attack, but on the reasons behind it, because this is not what we have here in the Glens, we are not used to this sort of thing. "

Inspector O'Brien said: "We received a report at approximately 11:10pm of what was described as 'a loud bang' in the Mill Street area of the village. 

"Police attended the scene where damage had been caused to a door and its frame, part of a wall and to two cars parked in the vicinity.

"Mill Street car park remains cordoned off this morning as officers continue with enquiries. 

"Properties on Bridge Street and Mill Street can only be accessed at this time via their front entrances. 

“I want to appeal to anyone who was in the area last night, between 11pm and the time the incident was reported to us, and who saw or heard anything suspicious to get in touch by calling 101."
