Sinn Féin MLA Caoimhe Archibald has praised the fire service after 12 people had to be moved from apartments at Long Commons in Coleraine in the early hours of last night after a suspected arson attack.

The East Derry MLA said:

“I wish to pay tribute to the emergency services who attended the scene for their professionalism and their efforts in suppressing the fire while rescuing people from the building.

“I will be contacting the Housing Executive and relevant bodies to ensure that steps are being taking to find alternative accommodation for residents whose apartments are no longer fit to live in.

“I would urge anyone with information to assist the police.”
