Witness appeal after fire breaks out at shop


​Nottinghamshire Police is appealing for information after a suspected arson attack on a shop.

Emergency services were called to the premises on Kingsway in Kirkby-in-Ashfield shortly before 4am yesterday (Thursday 6 January).

The fire remained at the doormat area and did not spread to the rest of the shop.  No one was injured, though significant damage was caused to the front door.
