Arrest made over 1990 Madeley Ski Slope fire death

A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder over the death of a teenager who died in a fire at a Shropshire ski centre almost 20 years ago.

Liam Wright, age 19, from Telford, Shropshire, died in a shed fire at the Madeley Ski Slope in Telford on 10 September, 1990.

An open verdict was recorded at his inquest.

West Mercia Police said a man in his 30s had been arrested earlier as a result of a recent case review.

Det Insp Paul Knight said: "The investigation into any suspicious death is never closed and even given the passage of time we will continue to examine the events of the night Liam died and endeavour to search for the truth about what happened."

Anyone with information is urged to contact police or call Crimestoppers anonymously.
