A fire is being treated as a racially aggravated incident after a family centre which is used by the Muslim community was broken into and set alight.

Emergency services were called to reports of a suspicious fire just after 11.45pm last night, Sunday November 10, at a family centre on Camps Road in Haverhill.

Entry to the building, which is used by the Muslim community but was empty at the time, had been forced into and a small fire is believed to have been started deliberately by unknown offenders.

Firefighters dealt with the fire quickly and nobody was hurt as a result of the incident.

Police are investigating the matter as a racially aggravated incident and enquiries are continuing.
