Barwell factory fire 'may have been started deliberately'
Police believe a fire which destroyed a Barwell factory on Saturday may have been started deliberately.
Leicestershire Police said today the cause of the fire which destroyed the Arden Direct and Digital mail order company in Arthur Street is now being treated as suspicious.
The factory, which contained hundreds of thousands of brochures, was engulfed in a huge inferno on Saturday afternoon.
Flames could be seen for miles around as more than 50 firefighters battled the blaze in the centre of Barwell for about seven hours.
Two videos by Mark Foster of the fire filmed from the Northern Perimeter Road in Hinckley, on Saturday at about 4.30pm.
