A teenager has been charged with arson in connection with a fire bomb attack on a dairy owned by a Muslim family.

The Medina Dairy in Dedworth, Berkshire, was the scene of several nights of violence in October last year.

Police arrested at least eight over the disorder and put a dispersal order in place around the dairy.

The 16-year-old boy from Windsor, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was charged over an incident on 4 October.

A police spokesman said: "The charge relates to an incident at the dairy in Vale Road on the evening of 4 October 2006, where a bottle containing accelerant was allegedly thrown at the property's front door."

The boy has been bailed to attend Maidenhead Youth Court on Tuesday 16 January.
