The owner of a Polish shop which has twice been attacked by arsonists has offered a £20,000 reward for information that leads to a conviction.

The Best Pol delicatessen in Barrack Road, Northampton, was set on fire on 4 December and again on 16 January.

Both fires happened in the early hours and severely damaged the building.

Police said they believe the incidents are linked and could be racially motivated. A CCTV image of a suspect was released last month.

It pictures a man within the store at about 02:30 GMT on 4 December.

Police think he may have been involved in the second attack, at 01:00 GMT on 16 January.

In one image, a man is seen wearing a distinctive hooded top with striped cuffs with the word Everlast written on the hood.

Officers are keen to hear from anyone who recognises the man, or anyone who knows someone with the same hooded top.
