Bakery blaze was arson – police


A FIRE which wrecked a Warrington bakery in the early hours of the morning is being treated as a case of arson.
Police are appealing for information about the blaze at Tomlin’s Bakery, in Synge Street, which was first reported by Warrington-Worldwide on Saturday morning.
They say they are following up a number of lines of enquiry.
Police and fire services were called to the scene at around 1.50am.
The fire service extinguished the blaze and no-one was injured as a result of the incident. But damage was extensive.
Fire investigation officers launch an investigation and it is now believed it was started deliberately.
DC Nat Lewis said: “We are appealing to anyone who has any information in relation to the fire to get in touch with us immediately – even the smallest amount of information can be useful when piecing together a case.
“We are currently following up a number of lines of enquiry and are urging anyone who was in the area around the time of the incident and might have seen anyone acting suspiciously to contact us.”
The number to call is 101, or information can be left anonymously on the Crimestoppers hotline, 0800 555 111.
