Arson attack at Jewish school

By Sandy Rashty, October 5, 2012

A suspected arson attack occurred at a Jewish primary school in Hackney last Friday night, September 28.

The fire at the Talmud Torah Toldos Yakov Yoser school in Heathland Road occurred between 00:10 - 00:20.

No one was hurt at the scene.

DC Nick Bull, from the Violent Crime unit in Shoreditch, said: “An investigator at the London Fire Brigade confirmed that no accelerant was used but believes that the fire was started on purpose, because two separate fires in two separate rooms were started at the same time.”

CCTV did not cover the area, but police are still appealing for witnesses and information about the attack.
