Arsonist Hunted After Bakery Set Ablaze

Police are hunting this motorcycle-helmeted arsonist, who poured flammable liquid all over a bakery floor and set the premises ablaze in the middle of the night.

Police were called at 5.30am on Monday, March 14 to Tavazo bakery, Ballards Lane, Finchley following reports of a fire and criminal damage.

The fire was believed to have started just before 5.00am.

London Fire Brigade attended and used eight engines to extinguish the fire.

Smoke alarms were in place but covered up so did not work.

CCTV footage captured the suspect approaching the rear door of the premises and gaining access through a door. 

The suspect is then captured walking around and dousing the floor with a flammable liquid from a black fuel container.

The suspect is described as wearing a distinctively patterned crash helmet, jacket trousers, gloves and black and white trainers.

Police are keen to hear from anyone who may recognise the suspect shown on the CCTV issued today.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact police on 101 or quoting reference number 212733 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
