Police have released CCTV images of two men they would like to speak to in connection with the disorder in Ealing in August.

The investigation relates to a break-in and fire at the Ealing Green Local shop at 23:00 BST on 8 August.

The first man is described as white, wearing a hooded top with the letters GSRD across the front.

The second man is described as black, wearing a black jacket with a grey hooded top underneath.

The shop was badly damaged and four residential flats above were destroyed in the fire.

Nearby properties also suffered significant water damage as the fire brigade worked to bring the flames under control.

Det Sgt Ewan Robertson, who is leading the investigation, said: "This mindless act has ruined people's livelihoods and homes, but it could easily have resulted in the loss of their lives."
