Arson attack on shop triggers traffic diversions.

YOUTHS are thought to have been responsible for a fire which forced police to divert traffic away a town centre.

An empty shop, which has been boarded up for nearly 10 years, was targeted by arsonists in Mill Street, Bedworth.

The former Chantelle cake shop, part of a Victorian terrace sold for auction last year, was at the centre of a 999 alert shortly before 7.30pm on Saturday.

Police in Bedworth had to close Mill Street and a section of George Street Ringway to traffic because of the fire in the derelict building.

Officers are appealing for help in identifying a group of youths seen near the shop shortly before the fire.
