Police want to question these two men on suspicion of setting fire to a shop and flats in Ealing, causing up to £3 million of damage.

The Ealing Green Local on The Green, was broken into at the height of the trouble at around 11pm on August 8th and was set on fire.

Several occupants who were inside the flats above the shop at the time had to flee.

The shop was gutted - estimates at the time put the cost of rebuilding work at up to £3million. Four residential flats above were also destroyed.

Nearby properties also suffered significant water damage as the fire brigade worked to bring the flames under control.

The first man is described as white, wearing a distinctive hooded top with the letters GSRD across the front.

The second man is described as black, wearing a black jacket with a grey hooded top underneath.

Detective Sergeant Ewan Robertson, who is leading the investigation,

"This mindless act has ruined people's livelihoods and homes, but it could easily have resulted in the loss of their lives. I would ask anyone who recognises the men in these CCTV images to speak to police or
contact Crimestoppers in the strictest of confidence."

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 020 8785 8580 or ring Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
