Family's terror as house and car petrol bombed as they slept

• by Andy McLaren

A councillor has spoken of his family's terror after their house and car were petrol bombed during the night.

Councillor Graeme Campbell, who represents Avondale and Stonehouse in Strathaven, South Lanarkshire, said his attacker was trying to kill him because of his work as a politician.

Cllr Campbell, his wife Fiona and 18-year-old son were asleep when the car and house in Fortrose Gardens went up in flames at 1.15am on Monday.

The family were woken when a passer-by knocked on their door to tell him their car was on fire after an explosion.

The blaze later spread to the house, destroying parts of the property as well as their neighbour's home.
