London: Arson suspects released on bail
TWO people arrested in connection with an arson attack in Croydon which destroyed an historic business have been released from police custody, Scotland Yard said tonight.
Police arrested a 15-year-old boy and a 25-year-old man last night on suspicion of arson with intent to endanger life following the large fire that razed The House of Reeves furniture store.
The teenager has been released on bail to a date to be fixed and the 25-year-old released with no further action being taken.
A 21-year-old man who was arrested on Tuesday over the arson attack has been bailed until September.
The family-run furniture store, which has stood in Croydon for more than 100 years, was set alight following rioting that erupted in the south London suburb.
