The Secretary of State appeals to anyone with information on this morning's suspected arson attack to come forward and speak to the PSNI

Theresa Villiers said:

I condemn this attack, as I have others which have targeted the Alliance offices over recent months.

It is totally unacceptable for elected representatives and their staff to be subject to this kind of intimidation.

I would appeal to anyone with information on those responsible to pass it to the PSNI as soon as possible.

I extend my support and sympathy to David Ford and his staff and colleagues.
