Sherlock homes in on café arsonists

A COFFEE shop owner has offered a £1,000 reward to help catch arsonists who set fire to his business.

Michael Sherlock put up the reward after his Coffee Mill shop in High Street, Weston, Bath, was severely damaged by what police are treating as a suspicious blaze.

The fire occurred in the run-up to Easter and the café is expected to be closed for several weeks. Police have arrested and questioned three men about the fire, and released them on bail to report back in May.
