This attack happened in the early hours of Saturday Morning

A Waterford Councillor says it's only by "an act of god" that a local family weren't killed in a petrol bomb attack at their home last night.

There was one man in the house during the attack at around 3:20am this morning.

Sinn Féin councillor John Hearne says the family were aware they may be in danger - following a series of incidents in recent days.
