45 Year-Old Mark Rayner Jailed For 15 Years
Man questioned over village arson
A man's been questioned over an arson attack that saw a gas canister burst into flames outside a house in a quiet village.
The front door of the house in Shillington, Bedfordshire was scorched when a gas canister burst into flames early on Friday 8 April 2011.
The owner, who was woken by the noise, managed to kick away the canister and a camping stove before more damage was caused.
DC Gill Cowley is keen to speak to anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area, or has heard someone talking about the incident.
She said: "Although no-one was hurt, it could have been much worse had the occupant not acted as quickly as he did.
"Shillington is a quiet village and I want to hear from anyone who saw anyone carrying that could have been a camping stove, running from the area or getting into a car."
Heart's been told a man was arrested in connection with what happened and released on police bail pending further enquiries.
An 18-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering Leonne Weeks, 16, who was found dead on a path in Rotherham.
