Police are appealing for witnesses after a firework damaged a home in Blyth.

It happened at 10.10pm on Saturday, November 5, when an unknown person put a lit firework through a letterbox in a property in Dunlin Drive. It caused damage to the laminate flooring in the hall. No one was injured during the incident.

There were a large group of people seen in the area at the time and police are asking for witnesses to come forward.

Sergeant Garry Neill said: "This is a serious incident and could very easily have led to a fire within the property and someone being injured by the firework. I'd ask people to think about how serious the consequences could have been and if they know who is responsible I'd ask them to come forward and talk to police."

Police are appealing for witnesses and anyone who was in the area and who may have seen or heard anything suspicious is asked to contact police.

Anyone with information should call police on 101, quoting reference number 103343A/16 or ring the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
