A FIREWORK caused damage to a house after it was posted through a door.
The attack happened on Thursday, between 6pm and 8.45pm, in Dunelm Walk, Peterlee, causing the flap of the box to be blown off, lodging itself in a doorframe.
Pc David Thompson said: “There was no fire caused. However, a new letterbox was required.
“No persons were on the premises at the time.
“This could quite easily have had a different outcome.”
