Firework posted through door

Have your say

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.”
