A 22-year-old local man has been arrested and bailed in connection with the incident, but police are still appealing to anyone who saw any suspicious activity in the area to call them.

It happened in Garside Street at around 11.45pm when the contents of a wheelie bin were set alight and the bin pushed against a communal door of the flat complex.

The fire caused smoke damage to the building and left one of a number of residents, who were inside their homes at the time, needing treatment for smoke inhalation.
