A PSNI spokesperson said: “We received a report from the homeowner that they had heard a loud bang outside the house in the Lisvarna Heights area shortly after 11pm.

“It wasn’t until this afternoon that they discovered a bullet lodged in the front door.

“Fortunately, no-one was injured in what can only be described as a reckless attack, which could have had serious consequences.
