TWO people were arrested following a report of burglary and attempted arson at a commercial unit in Redditch.

Firefighters were called to Sterling House on Small Wood Street after smoke was seen coming out of the building on Sunday (October 11).

A spokesperson for Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service said: "A police dog team had already been called to the building because of reports of an intruder.

"We had found cardboard that had been set alight in the premises."

On Twitter, PC Danny Fulford said officers searched the property and found two people hiding.

They were then arrested and taken into police custody.
