Arson arrest after fire destroys family home

A 46-year-old man arrested on suspicion of arson has been released on bail.

Police arrested him after fire broke out in a house in Winderbrowe Avenue on Friday  night.

He has been bailed until February 21 while investigations continue.

The family living there escaped unhurt but most of their possessions have been destroyed.

Police are appealing for information.

The fire at Windebrowe Avenue in Keswick began at around 11.47pm on Friday night, and tore through the house, leaving it gutted.

A car parked in the garage was also destroyed by the blaze.

The flames were so intense that headlights on cars nearby on the street melted.

Yes, those who are well off should not receive the same as those that aren't

No, means testing is costly and penalises people on benefits
