Two arrested after warehouse fire
Two men have been arrested in connection with a fire at a carpet warehouse and offices in Leicestershire.

The police believe the fire at Potters Carpets on Bradgate Road in Anstey on 18 February was started deliberately.

More than 70 firefighters tackled the blaze. Work has already begun to pull the damaged building down.

The warehouse was used by Potters Carpets and the textile company R Billson and Sons.

The Taylor family, who own the textile firm, are using makeshift offices in their homes.

Two men, a 38-year-old and a 19-year-old, have been released on police bail pending further inquiries.

Leicestershire Police are appealing for witnesses.
