A suspected arson attack at a church is being investigated by police as a possible hate crime.

It is thought a rare Bible was thrown on to the fire which was started in the vestry of St Andrew’s Church, in Twyford, Derbyshire, on Wednesday.

Damage estimated at £5,000 was caused and church warden Anne Bennett said the congregation found it very distressing.

A 23-year-old man, from Allestree, was arrested in connection with the blaze and has since been released on bail.
