Man arrested in Crooked House investigation

A 23-year-old man has been arrested over a blaze that tore through the Crooked House pub.

The man, from Leicestershire, was detained on Tuesday on suspicion of conspiracy to commit arson with intent or being reckless as to whether life was endangered.

He has been released on conditional bail while the investigation continues.

The pub in Himley was gutted by the fire in August and was demolished less than two days later, infuriating many in the local community and prompting anger across the UK.

Four men and a woman previously arrested as part of the investigation all remain on conditional bail.
