Man arrested over arson attack on Guildford flat

A 26-year-old man has been arrested following an arson attack at a property in Surrey.

Police said they were called to the fire at a ground-floor flat in Dene Road, Guildford, just after 23:30 BST on Sunday.

Det Con Dan Chant said it was fortunate nobody was injured.

The flat fire came after rubbish was set alight outside the same building at about 06:15 BST on Friday, which police said caused substantial damage.

Det Con Chant said: "I still need to talk to anyone with any information relating to this arson attack."

Police said the arrested man was helping them with their inquiries.
