A landlord arrested on suspicion of arson following a fire at his Suffolk pub will face no charges.
No further action will be taken against John Parnell, who was arrested following the blaze at The George, in Wickham Market, in the early hours of Thursday, April 18.
The 59-year-old, from Elmswell, was arrested on the same afternoon as police began enquiries into who started the fire.
A constabulary spokeswoman said: “A comprehensive investigation has been carried out but a review of the information gathered by police showed there was insufficient evidence to proceed with a criminal charge.”
Anyone with new information about the blaze can call Suffolk Coastal CID on 101.
