A 10-month-old girl and her 20-year-old mother were injured in a petrol bomb attack on their home early today.

They both suffered burns when the device was thrown through the bedroom window of their home at Glenarm on the Co Antrim coast and started a fire.

The mother fled with her baby from the burning house at Glenview Cottages at around 1.15am and both were treated in hospital for burns. Their injuries were not believed serious and they were released after the treatment.

A male occupant of the house escaped unhurt.

The RUC said the petrol bomb damaged a bed. There was no immediate indication of the motive for the attack.
