Cornwall restaurant Viners forced to shut after arson attack

A restaurant in Cornwall has been forced to shut after a suspected arson attack.

Fire crews from St Columb and St Denis were called to the blaze at Viners restaurant at Carvynick Farm, Summercourt, yesterday, the BBC reports.

Kevin Viner (pictured), the restaurant's owner and chef, and a former National Chef of the Year, said he was "shocked".

"It looks as though a window was broken and someone started a fire at the rear of the building," he said.

"It is an incident site with the police now and I haven't been allowed inside the building to see the damage."

Devon and Cornwall Police are appealing for anyone with information to get in touch.
