IT IS EVERY homeowner’s nightmare – waking up in the middle of the night to discover your home is on fire.

This is what Lorna Clarke, of 1st Avenue, The Ivy, St Michael, and her family faced early yesterday morning after an assailant set part of their home on fire.  

She said it was the latest in a string of incidents which have involved someone  throwing things through her window, such as bottles filled with faeces.
