Thames Valley Police has arrested a 30-year-old man in connection with an arson attack on a mosque in Buckinghamshire. Officers were called to the mosque in Manor Road, Bletchley, shortly before 1am after reports of a man acting suspiciously shortly before a fire at the rear of the building.
Officers carried out enquiries at the scene which led to them arresting a man on suspicion of arson with intent to endanger life shortly afterwards. No one was hurt in the incident.
Inspector Lee Brace said: 'There is a scene watch in place at the mosque at this time while enquiries are on-going and officers will be carrying out increased patrols in the area. Anyone with concerns about this incident should speak to them about these.'
