Man arrested over suspicious fire
A man has been arrested on suspicion of arson in connection with a fire in a block of flats.

Firefighters were called to an address in Portley Road, in the Dawley area of Telford, on Tuesday morning.

Neighbouring flats had to be evacuated, but there were no reports of any injuries. A first floor flat was severely damaged by the fire.

A spokesman from Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service said the flames could be seen from quite a distance.
