At 1:05am on Sunday, January 22, two men smashed an outside window in the bar area of the Jubilee Public House, in Fawdon, and poured an accelerant inside.

They then set fire to the liquid causing the pub to catch fire.

The landlord of the pub and his family, including young children, were upstairs at the time asleep.

They managed to escape shaken but unharmed.
