Detectives investigating arson at a petrol station in Greenwich have arrested a man.

The 23-year-old man from Islington was arrested in the early hours of this morning, 27 October on suspicion of arson after he handed himself in. He is currently in custody at a south-east London police station.

On 30 September at approximately 6:30 am, a man walked into the BP petrol station in Trafalgar Road, Greenwich and started a fire.

The fire was put out by a brave member of the public using a fire extinguisher.

Last week, investigating officers released CCTV images and moving footage appealing for help and information.

Any witnesses or anyone with any information should call Greenwich CID on 0208 284 9416 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
