Arson attack on Lincoln shop

Arsonists have set fire to a shop in Lincoln shop.

It is believed petrol or a similar liquid was poured through the door of the premises on Portland Street just after 23:00 GMT on Wednesday.

It was set alight, causing damage to doors and shutters, but the fire service put it out before the flames took full hold.

Police have asked anyone who saw suspicious activity in the area of the currently empty shop to come forward.
