Arrest over temple 'arson'
Some of the fire damage
The fire was thought to be arson
A man has been questioned in connection with a suspected arson attack at a Sikh temple.

A community centre at the temple in Swindon was allegedly doused with a flammable liquid and set on fire in October.

The damage, which it was estimated could cost up to 5,000 to repair, occurred less than two weeks after the new centre was opened.

Wiltshire police said on Sunday that a 32-year-old man from the west Swindon area had been arrested on Thursday.

He had later been released on police bail pending further inquiries.
