Shops Damaged In Coventry Arson Attack

Shops in Coventry city centre have been put at risk after arsonists caused damage to their fire exits last night.

Three shops in Hertford Street are now considered to be unsafe because of the lack of emergency access: a travel agents, a stationery shop and a shoe shop.

The fires were discovered at the rear of the shops last night at 1030pm. It is the second city centre blaze in the last few days.

At the weekend the former C&A store was badly damaged when a fire was started in a service area.
