Newbury narrowboat blaze was 'arson' say police

A fire on a narrowboat at New Mills, Newbury on the Kennet & Avon Canal 0n Saturday evening is being treated as arson by Thames Valley Police investigators.
Two appliances from Newbury Fire Station were called to the blaze shortly before 7pm on Saturday and soon had it under control. There was no one onboard at the time and police are now trying to trace the owner.

It is believed the fire was started deliberately after a window on the boat was smashed.

If you have any information about the fire contact the police on 101 (the police non-emergency number)
