National MP Anne Tolley's electorate office in Whakatane has been the subject of a firebomb attack.

It's understood a missile was thrown at the office on The Strand overnight.

The building has been cordoned off while police and fire officers investigate.

There is minor smoke damage, along with graffiti. The graffiti features a failed attempt at writing John Key's name, spelt J-H-O-N.

1XX reporter Georgia May says there have been some tensions in recent days over the signing of the TPPA.

Police confirmed the office of the Social Development Minister was under police guard after the attack.

An officer said more information would be released this morning.
